FINE ACTS LABS

UPDATE: The next edition of Fine Acts Labs will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria (7-11 June 2018) and will focus on the threats to democracy and civil rights in Europe, and the shrinking space for civil society in the region.

Fine Acts Labs are events that explore the intersection of human rights, art and technology, and develop a range of solutions - from immersive, participatory art pieces to apps with a strong art component.

By communicating human rights issues in new, unexpected ways, we seek new avenues to inspire action and attract support.

 
 

Fine Acts Labs is an innovative format (a unique type of a hack-art-on) that invites activists, artists and technologists to work together and prototype art & tech projects that raise awareness or contribute to a concrete solution.

Supported by mentors, teams of artists and technologists work together over a weekend. A jury then awards the best ideas with funds for further development.

The pilot event took place in July 2017, and was dedicated to women’s rights.

The LATEST edition of Fine Acts Labs WAS IN November 2017 in Sofia, Bulgaria, and WAS focusED on Freedom of speech, LGBT rights, and Climate change and pollution.
