OKNO provides several forms of workshops.

Apart from the regular non-periodic OKNO workshops OKNO is also engaged in the x-med-k series in collaboration with Nadine and Foam.

Workshops zijn belangrijk voor de werking van OKNO en worden in verschillende vormen in het programma geintegreerd.
Naast onze standaardwerking neemt OKNO ook deel aan de x-med-k-reeks in samenwerking met Foam en Nadine.

"[T]here are other things that need doing, and one of these is the development of an imaginary of technology, an understanding of its poetics and a testing manifestation of those poetics in ways that allow us to think and sense through what that technology is." -- Matt Fuller

Following the path laid out in "Towards an Ecology of MediaEcology" FoAM, Nadine and OKNO will conclude the .x-med-k. series with a final workshop in Saint Erme, France.

In this workshop, the three organisations explore media and media technologies as an ecosystem, deeply networked. At an isolated location in the Champagne region, participants will gather for a week of workshops, reflection and practical sessions around the themes of networks, collaborative projects and Tech-Nouveau. The workshop will take an 'Open Space' approach, and all participants will be expected to take an active role in shaping their activities.

OKNO will bring it's wireless routers to craft a local wireless network extended to serve as an artistic medium. FoAM will undertake hands-on experiments with simulated biological systems, experiments which will be extended along with ad-hoc discussions regarding complexity, whole-systems, patterns, biomorphism and biomimetics in physical and simulated lifeforms and ecosystems. Participants are also invited to contribute to collaborative projects, developed throughout the week, guided by Nadine.

The ALDA project aims to foster and further develop learning partnership among adult learners in digital art, especially to stimulate exchange of ideas between trainers, tutors and adult educators on the one side, and artists, designers and content providers on the other.

.x-med-k. is a series of workshops and seminars dealing with the many faces of 'experimental media arts'. Since 2004, three Brussels based art and technology organisations (nadine, okno and FoAM) have joined forces to design and implement this heterogeneous series, for artists and designers interested in experimental use of digital media, new materials and technologies... more
