Free / Libre Arts and Technologies
collective and collaborative
R&D – School - Workshop
The specific administrative structure is still being discussed (asbl/vzw + coorperative ? )
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.
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.
F/LAT is happening at different spaces along the year, following the relevant activities around. but 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, to have a plateau where diverse cells can interact and have their own intimacy These cells are supposed to evolve over the time.
The space would also benefit to be in the direct environment of the participating groups. (ex. sharing of a bigger space)
This space is here to offer a place where ideas only evoked by the technical research can become real artistic experiments, impossible to develop in a context of a real production scenario. the preliminary researches permit ideas to fix themselves on the adequate tools and helps other unexpected events to bring new ideas to lights.
