To develop working models for cross-sector collaborations, a consortium of P2P Network members will run Creative Labs from 2003.

Proboscis is planning to develop two different kinds of Labs: single day events and two days events. Each Lab will focus on a specific theme. Two day events will include a public forum component to present outcomes to a wider group.

2 Day Lab Model:

Day 1 is a closed workshop for up to 20 invited participants from the arts, industry and academia. Intensive brainstorming sessions aim to devise new approaches in collaborative practices to themes of innovation and creative development. Outcomes of the sessions could include micro-projects or project concepts around the Lab's theme, or a map of relevant issues.

Day 2 has two parts: a bodystorming session to act out ideas and concepts developed the previous day, followed by an open public forum. The forum is an opportunity present the outcomes of the first day and widen the process of debate and exploration by inviting peers and the public to take part.

Documentation from each Lab will be posted on the P2P website.

  • Lab 1– a two day event at the London School of Economics in partnership with MEDIA@LSE in May 2003. It will focus on wireless networks, social knowledge and public authoring.
  • Lab 2 – A half-day Lab at the Sussex Arts Club in Brighton in partnership with Lighthouse Media Centre in June 2003. It will focus on creative interventions with digital technologies in public libraries and archives.
  • Lab 3 – a two day event at the London School of Economics in partnership with MEDIA@LSE in September 2004. It will focus on public authoring and civil society.
