Innovation Night [Residences & Workshops 2016]

Innovation Night

ARTos Foundation in collaboration with hack66 and with the support of the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Home for Cooperation hosted ‘INNOVATION NIGHT | Accelerating Innovation through openness’, which took place on the 15 June 2016 at 20:00, at The Structure Makespace (Opposite Ledra Palace, in the parking lot next to Home4Cooperation), within the framework of the Creative Europe Programme ARTECITYA 2014 – 2018.

The Structure is an open participatory workspace, a modular transparent makerspace, or a durational interactive public art installation (!) for/with techies, artists, makers and inventors. The idea for the Structure is based on the principles of re-use, recycling, and reclamation of materials, as well as on the principles of radical inclusion, gifting, de-commodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, “Leaving No Trace,” participation, and immediacy. The project’s politics are those of do-ocracy, of making, openness, freedom, transparency, and collaboration.
