Relearn Variable summerschool 2014

Good news! Considering how well last years OSP Relearn Summer School went, we're reiterating and extending the school with all of the people and labs that make up Variable. We're really exited to be able to make this happen again, especially considering all the extra people that will be joining in this year. Relearn starts on July 6th (Sunday) and ends 11 July (Friday). You might have received some of this info by email already, so here is an overview of what we're attempting to do:

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.
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.

Relearn welcomes participants — artists, students, teachers, practitioners — from all ages and disciplines.

→ Check out the publication that was put together by gathering all of our common written experiences from last year
(and even print your own on Lulu )

To participate, please send an e-mail to before April 25, and include a short description of your hopes for this years worksessions and what kind of learning experiences you would like to be part of.
Participation is free but the number of places is limited to 60!
We'll be in touch by the 5th of May.

This year we'd like to open up the process and let anybody submit a proposal for a worksession; we've detailed how to do so on
