CourtCircuitCourt Summerlab @ Nantes

What links a digital hacker who designs projects in a lab, a member of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) who believes in sustainable local produce and supports a farmer, and citizens who share experience and knowledge online? Perhaps it is the desire to redefine the relationship between production and consumption, the need to be an empowered citizen rather than passive consumer. To create, grow, reconfigure and question - to 'hack' society and transform it.

Short Circuit / Short Process is the first edition of PiNG's Summer Lab. A 6 day-workshop where hackers, open source geeks
and DIY (Do It Yourself) advocates come together with community activists to collaborate, co-create and co-produce through workshops, experiments, discussions and performance.

Short Circuit / Short Process is the French component of the Summer of Labs 2012, a series of events organised by community laboratories and hackspaces from the Atlantic Arc (Nantes > Bilbao > Gijón > Guimarães > Sevilla > Casablanca). Complying with the ethos
of the free culture movement, the event will create open environments for co-production and collaboration, tackling issues that are common to
all from thematic nodes.

Short Circuit / Short Process is part of the two year LabtoLab
network launched by PiNG

The visit to "Short Circuit / Short Process" was funded by Grundtvig, the EU Life Long Learning Programme.
