Deep Space LIVE: Best of FutureWorkshop
(Linz, February 23, 2016) “My FutureWorkshop” is a program that makes it possible for 120 unemployed young people each year to spend a week getting a behind-the-scenes look at the Ars Electronica Center. The lineup includes various workshops that focus on and utilize the entire spectrum of in-house resources. The offerings range from experimentation in the Sound Studio to video shoots using professional-grade equipment. Some of the projects that these young people have produced to date will be showcased at the next Deep Space LIVE on Thursday, February 25, 2016 at 8 PM.
The FutureWorkshop’s offerings target young people enrolled in training programs, and are designed to enable participants to get acquainted with and get hands-on experience in interesting new areas of activity. Up to 20 youngsters at a time can take part in the curriculum staged en bloc over the course of a single week. The FutureWorkshop is a cooperative venture that was launched in May 2015 and set to run for two years. So far, two of the participants have made such a positive impression that they were offered jobs and are now members of the Ars Electronica Center’s staff.
