Autonomous Centre from Čakovec is there to help put it together and work on basic logistics. FF has only few strictly set up time-lines: one for workshopology seminar which happens around noon, and three meals. Other times are open for workshops, presentations collaboration and comradeship.

Workshop is popular and easy way to say interactive “hands on” activity, which can induce learning or development of some skills. In this modern world we live in, lot of things are self-called workshop. The question still remains, what is good workshop? How to develop and implement one? It is both scientific and artistic process of performance creation with multiple not entirely overlapping outcomes. The Workshopology symposium is hold by expert participants, and open to public observation and participation, meeting where people involved in different workshop activities will self analyse their own activities.

Eva Aguila and Brock Fansler are the producers of the cable television show Experimental Half-Hour, based out of Portland, Oregon USA. The cable television show showcases local and international musicians, dancers, comedians, writers, and performance artists. Our collaborators include established professional artists as well as new performers that excite and inspire us. In addition to broadcasting locally and maintaining a free Internet archive, we engage with the community by curating live multimedia performances, screening episodes at local festivals, and strongly encouraging public participation at tapings. Experimental Half-Hour facilitates a connection between artists and the often underestimated resources our community provides to create, document, and share work with others. Conceptual growth is stimulated by access to a broad range of new and old technologies. A video might be shot in HD, then edited on an analogue mixer. A visual artist might have the opportunity to play with a green screen for the first time.
Together we will be hosting a workshop demonstrating the techniques utilized in production of episodes. Topics include: Projection Mapping, Analog Video Synthesis, Hardware Hacking, and DIY Video Glitching.

With the regular programme combined of workshops and events such as Edu lab / Izobraževalnice (open software) and Free Circuit / Prostovezje (open hardware) which are both based on DIY and DIT spirit, Ljudmila is firmly engaged with open source production and development. Ljudmila’s art programme is supported by Digital Dish (Digitalni obrok), annual resident program and through international networking. Since 2005 Ljudmila has been operating also as a public lead for the Creative Commons Slovenia project and is a member of the international Creative Commons network.
