The specific administrative structure is still being discussed (asbl/vzw + coorperative ? )
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)
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.
The main cells that interact together, that structure the platform in 3 complementary dynamics:
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 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.
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.
