Good Practice Information
Interactivos? Birmingham is a UK-based, two-week, international seminar and open innovation prototyping workshop. The model, conceived by Medialab-Prado as a hybrid between a production/learning space and exhibition showcase, provides an opportunity for reflection, research, cooperation and creation.
Proposals on a theme are selected through an international open call. They are then developed by interdisciplinary teams, completed and displayed. The process is open to the public from beginning to end. The budget is EUR 90,000 for a full two-week programme including international experts.
Evidence of success
Interactivos? is widely regarded as an international model of best practice, and in bringing the project to Birmingham in 2014, it was the first time it had been hosted in the UK. In doing so, regional and national individuals made connections to a global network of creative and digital professionals, centred around collaboration and technological production.
