As part of konS≡Garden, we present an initiative that has brought together nine partners from five Slovenian cities. In these cities, the project konS≡Platform has made it possible to establish a network of contemporary investigative art laboratories that feature programs for informal education where participants develop their theoretical and practical knowledge of how to use new technologies in a creative and critical way. It also encourages ambitious artistic investigation and creation, supporting the efforts to bring new, different and ethical ideas into the innovative process for a better tomorrow. Establishing a collaborative program all over the country is a challenge that we intend to meet by establishing systemic conditions for education and development aimed at audiences and future co-workers who will co-create in the inspiring environment of the fully developed Platform. That’s why we are setting up a series of well-equipped laboratories where artists collaborate with scientists and engineers to explore and create artworks, develop workshops, and demonstrate prototypes. Five laboratory units are scattered throughout the country in partner cities and help to create a larger critical mass of people, spaces and equipment. By doing so, konS≡Platform is becoming a network of intermedia creators with strategic importance in the project of enculturating technologies, making it an important catalyst for social change.
