Be welcome at Page Not Found to celebrate the new Hackers & Designers publication “First, Then… Repeat. Workshop Scripts in Practice” with a book presentation and series of workshops!
“First, Then… Repeat. Workshop Scripts in Practice” is a on and offline publication that assembles self-published and unpublished workshop scripts that evolved in and around the collective ecosystem of Hackers & Designers. Hackers & Designers has been organizing workshops since 2013, and along the way has established social-technical affinities that are loose and stable, temporary and ongoing. The collective has met and befriended many practitioners and sister organizations since, and got acquainted with manifold, peculiar pedagogical formats, and experimental approaches to working, learning, and being together. This publication derives from an enthusiasm for the various ways collective learning environments take shape. It grew out of a curiosity for the ways that such practices are shared across different localities, timelines, and experiences.
Hackers & Designers will take the occasion of the book launch to present, activate and reflect on workshop scripts in practice. The book will be on view and for sale, and we will host several workshops that are open for visitors to join.
The publication, installation (built with the fanfare display system) and workshop program are part of the artistic research project of designer, educator and Hackers & Designers member Anja Groten at PhDArts, Academy for Creative and Performing Arts Leiden and the Making Matters project.
