6 -> 12 : Relearn

Relearn is a summerschool with as many teachers as it has participants. It is about sharing and trying Free Culture practices, and is entirely done with Free, Libre and Open Source software. Relearn takes place in Variable, a collectively run F/LOSS Arts Lab in Brussels. It starts from the idea that tools are increasingly mediated by software and the algorithmic and legal dynamics that constraint and shape its use. Reconnecting to the physical and digital material of those tools is a means of (re)asserting ownership and ensuring active participation in the future of our work practices.

The subject of the workshop will be “Blender lookback” (as an inspiration or parody of the “Facebook lookback”).

Ideally, by changing the content of the folder and re-running the scripts, you'd obtain a somewhat same but different movie.
