Medialab-Prado (MP) is aimed at the production, research, and dissemination of digital culture. It offers a permanent information and meeting space. MP promotes free software and free culture and fosters debate, knowledge and innovation related to copyright licenses and intellectual property in the digital context. MP has substantial experience in organising international workshops and conferences, creating an open environment for collaborative production and intense knowledge exchange. Its methodical approach to education and cultural mediation makes sure to involve users and communities (professionals, students, amateurs) in all its’ projects. The digital facade of MP is a research and experimentation device. The objective is to explore the relation between the digital facade and public space, to experiment with the screen’s communicative, narrative and visual capacities and to investigate its potential to offer new forms of participation.
