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.
During the “semaine numérique 2014”, a Blender-Brussels BPY/BGE workshop will be organized and will introduce you to a more experimental approach to the Blender Game engine and Python programming.
28th edition of Jeudi du libre is about video editing with KDEnlive. Thierry Gavroy will share his experience with Kdenlive, which he uses for his private videos and for the recording of the conferences of Jeudi du Libre.
The subject of the workshop will be “Blender lookback” (as an inspiration or parody of the “Facebook lookback”). The idea is to work on a series of scripts to automate the creation of movies based on images and videos taken from a folder. Ideally, by changing the content of the folder and re-running the scripts, you'd obtain a somewhat same but different movie.
An introduction to python programming and its application inside Blender. Workshop organized between David Collignon, François Zajéga and Julien Deswaef
A one evening exhibition with digital art installations, videos projections and live performances in a 1500m² bunker cave complex soon to be used as a datacenter, in the undergrounds of Paris.
An introduction to shader coding in python for Blender users.
open workshop around the project of Natacha Roussel and Pieter Heremans involving Pure Data with X-bee mesh network, RaspberryPi and text to speach synthesis
What does it mean to serve and to host? What should server technology of today be about? How to re-appropriate networks for creative experiment?
In this one-day workshop, you will build your own printer together in a small group of enthousiastic printrbot builders. A complete 3D printer kit will be provided., it will be the Wallace++ design which is open hardware.
This conference illustrated by numerous examples proposes a first introduction to Net Art through connected works beyond the duality of web and screen. Jacques Urbanska (digital artist, performes, web master, community manager) will present artworks that use the Internet as physical connexion tools, as means to reinvint the web or accelerate its dissolution in “real life”.
Learn how to combine your favorite textiles and electronics…
The debate that opposes the rights of authors and file sharing has been stifled into a virtual trench warfare. FREE?! attempts to answer this question by looking at the alternative offered by the free culture movement, both exploring its potential and the obstacles it encounters.
The monthly workshop exploring Python programming in the context of Blender, or the other way around. This workshop will be focusing on the use of Blender from the command-line and extracting information from .blend files. The workshop will start with a point of view of the BlenderConf by one (or more) of the attendees.
Malcolm Le Grice is a film and video artist. He has written critical and theoretical works including a history of experimental cinema and numerous articles on film, video and digital media. In this lecture, Malcolm Le Grice will examine in particular the development of art focussing on the machine, as in Kinetic Sculpture and in the special development of Photography, Film, Video and Digital technology.

workshop : Video mapping and multiview with Pure Data
Teaching about main components (resistances, diodes, diodes Zeener, transistors et capacitors,…).
The studiobuilding VARIABLE opens its doors every first Thursday of the month for ’LOOP’, an informal moment for everyone who would like to meet the artists, taste the work, see the studio-space. VARIABLE is a ’Free Libre Open Source Software (F/LOSS) Arts Lab’.

This is the first part of a 4 hours workshop aimed at helping beginners to programming or to Python getting their hands on the language. The second part will take place on the following Monday. Part 2: http://www.meetup.com/OpenTechSchool-Brussels/events/144891682/
‘Free Libraries for Every Soul’ is an ode to books and libraries. This hackathon will contribute to developing the shape, processes and access to books; from printed matter to e-book, and from typography to algorithm. Hacker and cyber-librarian Marcell Mars, accompannied by Open Source Graphic Designer Femke Snelting will host a hackathon whereby graphic designers, hackers, UX designers, graphic designers, independent publishers and programmers can collaborate to develop today's incarnation for Melvil Dewey’s dream.

The Pure Data patching circles are free open workshops organized monthly to gather, share learn and enjoy around the Pure Data software in a creative way. This month session will cover *Hello Data + pdgst*. As more basics are asked, so here we go again. Some more time to catch the fluxes of data. And for the adventurous, some pdgst experiments with video streams and manipulations.
In the basic workshop, with Kurt and Lieven, you will learn how you can make, use and program this micro-controller.
