Call for participants


Participants in Promiscuous Pipelines can be artists and/or thinkers and/or developers interested in rethinking tool-sets, methods or systems. You are invited to bring existing or imagined projects that care about connections between social, technical and physical worlds.

There are 5 places available. If you are interested in participating, please send a short motivation to by July 1, 2015.

The worksession starts on Monday 31 August in the afternoon and ends on Saturday evening. The session is organised by Constant in collaboration with FoAM and hosted in their Brussels studio.

Participation is free. Constant and FoAM will provide lodging and vegetarian lunch. A basic hardware workshop, plus a library of related materials will be made available. If you need anything particular, let us know and we’ll try to facilitate it.

We’ll primarily use Free, Libre and Open Source software because we would like to focus on tools that invite us to speak back to their social and technological construction.
