IT expert and dynamic player in the free software community through two structures, Domainepublic.net and the non-profit organisation Tactic.

- Mia Melvaer (Brussels * no/en/nl)
Mia Melvær is a Norwegian visual artist based between Brussels and Norway. Her practice of sculpture and painting explores the crossroads between technology, materiality and ways of recording. With a special interest in collective constellations, queer and feminist archives and their intersections with cyberspace, her work is essentially one that oscillates between hands-on sculptural production and assembling scraps from archival deep-dives to create narrative patchworks.

- Peter Westenberg (Brussels * nl/fr/en/de)
Peter Westenberg is visual artist and film- and video-maker.The website videomagazijn.org collects works realised after 1998 that range from printed matter to films and interactive media and show an interest in visual exploration, social myths, psycho-geography, media representation and sentimental journeys. His projects evolve from an interest in social cartography, urban anomalies and the relationships between locative identity and cultural geography. He interrogates notions of public space, community and social place through collages, video and shared authorship projects. The projects Parlez-Vous Saint-Gillois? and La Langue Schaerbeekoise are participatory audio projects, databases, urban interventions, walks and broadcasts around cross cultural, assembled, deformed and invented words that are spoken in multi-lingual neighborhoods in Brussels. In 2015 he initiates the European project Iterations that explores he future of artistic collaboration in digitally networked contexts.
