RELEARN: Libre Graphics Summer School

The design caravan Open Source Publishing invites you for a design education experiment this summer — from 26 until 30 August 2013

By and large, graphic design students bring a laptop to school, and create their work using digital software tools. This hard- and software represents a technological and cultural heritage that is seldomly questioned, and a potential that goes unexploited. Using free and open source software and engaging in its culture provides an alternative by making a design practice possible with a more intimate and experimental relation to its toolbox.

Beyond the implications for design practice, the culture of free and open source software challenges traditional education paradigms because knowledge is exchanged outside institutional borders, and participants move between roles easily (teacher, student, developer, user). Following from their series of workshops and Print Parties, OSP proposes a summer school experiment.


Deadline for application: 4th of July
