WORKSHOPS

As a media art curator, I think that public experimentation and DIY is fundamental. That’s why I offer workshops and trainings related to my activities in machinima, opensource archive publishing and Web jaying always in partnership with other structures like AJLSM or persons like Emmanuel Mayoud, David Vannier or Anne Roquigny.
