The results of the workshop will be present in an open session that will form part of the public Art d’Art Photo BCN program on line. In this forum, the participants will explain a short presentation (1-2 minutes each) showing the starting point and how the workshop will change their mentality.
The organizers will present the idea of TINDEP, a platform for text-imatge-appointments-events-network that seeks to give the creators and thinkers dialog a tangible reality. They invite the audience to contribute to the idea and propose forms to develop it.
Participants must register through the form and submit their work in advance by email. If you are selected, they will join the group, but they have been prepared to tremble intensely for a day.
