In the centre is core group (number of participants and who they are is still negotiated and depends on many factors) that will work between themselves, but will also open space for interaction with anyone: gallery visitors, other groups that will come to the gallery, TI students… Core group, besides their internal creative processes of interaction and information exchange, is also mediating processes between other groups and actors. Their task is also to bring to open end process and self-organized spirit.

Second circle are TI students. As they have own works to present, consideration towards space, noise, actions has to be communicated. TI students communicate with core group in terms of collaborating between group members and their own projects and between events that will be done by external groups.

External groups are envisioned as ones working with new media and interactive approach with community in mind. Open source group can inform and educate on freeing our machines, wireless group on getting us connected peer to peer, food group on international food and group cooking, alternative media on small scale radio broadcasting, Internet audio and video broadcasting, circuit bending group on music improvisation and battery run audio equipment self production, VJ tools for real time video manipulation, etc…

Core group will at all times open new discussions concerning freedom of creativity, authorship, copyright, new technology and production in open end creativity. Discussions will be led on-line and p2p and outcomes will be documented and opened for everyone to comment or to take part.

Events to consider:

1. Linux install festival – free your computer: volunteer based Linux install event with  accompanying event: food, talks, drinks.

2. Radio broadcasting – free your media: small scale FM radio installing and experimental broadcast.

3. Audio and video streaming using open source software – free your network: create your own on-line radio and TV.
