Science Gallery (Dublin) and Medialab-Prado (Madrid) are issuing an Open Call for projects to be collaboratively developed and presented during Interactivos?'12 Dublin: Hack the City. Current and Future Needs (Dublin, Ireland, July 11 – 26, 2012), with the participation of advisors and technical assistants.

Deadline: May 20, 2012.
Call for collaborators: June 1 - July 5, 2012

Through this call 6 to 7 ideas will be selected, aiming to:
- Involve the design of objects, installations or other platforms that put the hacker ethos into practice.
- Utilise open and free software and hardware technology developed through "Do It Yourself" (DIY) and "Do It With Others"(DIWO) methodologies and working strategies.
- Address current and future city needs - Specifically we are calling for projects that address: Crowd Sourcing Public Data, Wellbeing and Open Data Services.

Interactivos?'12 Dublin will see Medialab Prado and Science Gallery work together to set up an experimental laboratory to channel hacker culture, and allow artists, designers, makers, doers, data nerds, hobbyists, citizen scientists, tech geeks, activists, edgy engineers and DIY urban planners to take control over the resolution of problems that affect and link together worldwide 'communities of concern'. Interactivos?'12 Dublin will move citizen science out of the garage/prototype stage and onto the street.

Advisors of the workshop: Tim Redfern, Carolina García Cataño, John Lynch with Teresa Dillon (HACK THE CITY curator).
