Labs - Hirikilabs
Hirikilabs is a laboratory for digital culture and technology working on the social, critical, creative and collaborative use of technology. As a space for experimentation and prototyping it proposes activities related to the digital world, collaborative creation and citizen initiative and does so in the context of an international production centre for contemporary culture such as Tabakalera.
With its activity Hirikilabs seeks to stand as a space for reflection and experimentation around why, how and for what we use technology, as a Tabakalera resource for artists and creators to realize their projects and as a tool for free and open knowledge to inspire the general public and the lab community itself.
It is a project created and developed in collaboration between Tabakalera and San Sebastian 2016 European Capital of Culture.
Have you wondered to what point Labs share and reproduce dominant tendencies? Or, conversely, do you think that Labs resist these? What’s going on with technology is an event for questioning and rethinking behaviours in technology and culture spaces.
Do It in Family (DIF) is based on the Do It Yourself (DIY) and Do It with Others (DIWO) philosophies. As in previous years, we'll focus on the division of roles and tasks between the adults and the children, and we'll try to find solutions to the conflicts that arise when working on something together.
Process in which anyone can bring project proposals related to technology and / or digital culture to be developed at Hirikilabs in collaboration with other people (DIWO-Do It With Others). The philosophy of Hirikilabs Plaza is the promotion of free culture, open design and sharing knowledge.
