From 5 to 13 August, wpZimmer will open its doors to the Medialabo of the Mestizo Arts Festival (MAF): a co-production of MAF, wpZimmer and GEN2020. The Medialabo is an informal master class in communication for artists and art organisations with which MAF feels a connection. There is a large arsenal of creative and alternative ways to do promotion. MAF has invited a selection of speakers who discuss various aspects of communication at ’round tables’. Anyone who wants can have a personal conversation with them. Regardless of the artistic project or course you have, you will receive tailor-made tips & tricks. The full programme can be found below.

From 10 to 12 August, Topo Copy will work with you on a fanzine (a magazine in which each artist gets their own piece). Together with photos and videos that will be made during this media lab, we are also working on the communication of #MAF14. If there are no ’round tables’, we will continue to work in our ‘communication lab’. Everyone is more than welcome to come and work here.
