-===== a platform ​=====+===== What ? =====
  
 +==== a platform ====
  
-   * a structure for research and experiments (F/LAT.dev) 
-   * an international school (F/LAT.edu) 
-   * a platform for networking and activities (F/LAT.tmp)

 +==== F/LAT is not ==== 
 + 
 + 
 +   a production space 
 +   * a diffusion - exhibition - show place 
 +   * an academical school 
 + 
 +===== Why ? ===== 
 + 
 +==== by and for artists and creatives ==== 
 + 
 + to 
 + 
 +   * gather ​scattered, lonely ​and often orphaned experimentations,​ to create a critical mass more strong and durable.

-   * blooming projects that are often kept as intention notes because ​of the lack of know-how+   * blooming projects that are often kept as intention notes  
 +   * explore ways and path only possible by the meeting ​of diverse people and ideas shared across time and space 
 +  
 +===== Where ? ===== 
 + 
 +==== concerning space(s) ==== 
 + 
 + 
 +===== in Brussels ===== 
 + 
 +  * at the crossroad of Europe and the world, 
 +  * in a multicultural city with a size of a big village 
 +  * many languages and culture cross and exchange 
 +  * short and fast connections with other regional and international hubs of arts and technologies. 
 + 
 +===== 1000 plateaux / physical spaces ===== 
 + 
 +F/LAT is happening at different spaces along the year, following the relevant activities around. 
 +For the establishment of a perenial knowledge and practice base, 
 +F/LAT is actually seeking for a min 250m² plateau to install a modular space distribution, ​ where diverse cells can interact and have their own intimacy, while evolving over the time. 
 + 
 +The space would also benefit to be in the direct environment of the participating groups.  
 +(ex. sharing of a bigger space) 
 + 
 +For now, F/LAT is located into temporary offices, 45 rue du Canal 1000 Brussels. 
 + 
 +===== How ? ===== 
 +  
 +==== Free/libre software and hardware ==== 
 + 
 + 
 +teachings and researches, all the techniques and projects must be based on methods and software that are free (as in free speech) and open, using open standards. 
 + 
 +==== Interdisciplinarity ==== 
 + 
 + F/LAT is a place where the boundaries between arts fade away, become porous and fertile 
 +There is no distinction between the diverse fields of arts and expressions. 
 + ​transversal subjects, and not a focus on a discipline or academical category. 
 + 
 +===== Structure? ===== 
 + 
 +==== How we organize this big mess ? ==== 
 +  
 +** => we propose an environment** 
 + 
 +===== Flat (non)hierarchy ===== 
 + 
 +No hierarchy, only revocable mendates to take charge of tasks/​programs,​ 
 +Continuous participation to decision process and General Assembly with active members. 
 + 
 +==== 3 levels of involvments : ==== 
 +  
 +  * active members with responsabilities/​charges (organizers) 
 +  * active members without responsabilities/​charges (participants) 
 +  * supportive members without charge/​responsabilities (passive supporters) 
 + 
 +===== modular cells ===== 
 + 
 +The main cells that interact together, that structure the platform in **3 complementary dynamics**:  
 + 
 +  * [[dev:​start|F/​LAT.dev]] - Research and development 
 +  * F/LAT.tmp - Community Events 
 +  * [[ http://​f-lat.org/​kiwi/​doku.php/​edu:​start|F/​LAT.edu]] - Knowledge base and education program 
 + 
 + 
 +===== F/LAT.dev ===== 
 + 
 +[[dev:​start|F/​LAT.dev]] 
 + 
 +  * Here ideas only evoked by the technical research can become real artistic experiments,​ impossible to develop in a context of a real production scenario.  
 +  * Preliminary researches permit ideas to fix themselves on the adequate tools and helps unexpected events to bring new ideas to lights. 
 +  * These artistic research are made in a constant feedback and integration of the technological research and development,​ and helps the inventions, the production, the transformation and the dissemination of tools and methods. 
 +  * Crossing techniques and technology, artistic experimentations based on generic tools to subvert and transform them. Collaborations with other groups of technicians (ex. university labs, hackerspace,​ fablabs, artist collectives,​ etc… )  
 + 
 +===== F/LAT.tmp ===== 
 + 
 +see the [[calendar|Calendar]] of activities in our out of F/LAT 
 + 
 +Communities event around the sharing ​of know-how, participative experiments,​ short intensive and year long open workshops together to discover, exchange and support very diverse practicies. 
 + 
 +Regular non constraining activities of sharing, helping the porosity of the space. Events like master-classes,​ lectures, hackatons, code-sprint,​ code4kids, etc.  
 + 
 +===== F/LAT.edu ===== 
 + 
 +A formal tutorat by experimented artists for people willing to start a intensive process allong a full year and a personal project (even vague at start):  
 + 
 +exemple of schedule :
  
-   ​* ​beyond pure technical ​or artistic fantasies +   ​* ​1 meeting / week with their tutor, during one afternoon and with 2 or 3 students of the interest. 
-   ​* ​beyond ​the secrets ​of miracle makers and magicians +   ​* ​2 + meeting / month with all the students, an interdisciplinary meeting to share the advancements ​of the projects. 
-   ​* ​so digital art can be as accessible as drawing+   ​* ​1 + meeting / month with a researcher of the F/LAT.dev
  
 +   ​*Getting [[http://​www.workexperiencecredits.com/​|Work Experience Degree]] from Top University is essential...
