Call for Work-shops

Media Architecture Biennale 2018 Workshops

Call for Workshop Proposals

We are looking for people who are excited about the role of media and technology in the urban environment and want to share this excitement with an interdisciplinary audience.

The Media Architecture Biennale is a biannual event, featuring workshops, a conference and an exhibition, that attracts interaction designers, lighting designers, architects, artists, researchers and industry practitioners.

The workshops at the Media Architecture Biennale are an interactive, dynamic forum leading up to the conference and exhibition, with an opportunity for exchanging ideas, forming communities, sharing knowledge, inspirations, getting in touch, prototyping and networking.

The next Media Architecture Biennale will be held in Beijing, China, 13-16 November 2018. We welcome workshops on academic research, art and industry themes.
