Platoniq Open Office

Courses and workshops + Festivals


Platoniq is an international collective of cultural producers and software developers. Its work focuses on possible social uses of technology and networking, seeking to develop strategies that generate new forms of communication, training and citizen's organisation. Since 2003 it has been one of the groups collaborating with the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona and in the last year has obtained two prizes for its project Burn Station at the Transitio Electronic Arts Festival in Mexico City and at the Transmediale digital culture festival in Berlin.


Currently it is running three lines of research and development in the field of culture applied to new media and experimental public formats that relate training, production and dissemination.


1. Open Server: online audio transmission tool and media archive:


2. Burn Station: distribution system for music and radio programmes under copyleft licences in public spaces:


3. Common Knowledge Bank: dynamics of exchange and collective production involving the free transmission of knowledge and mutual education:


During Now, Platoniq will be installing a temporary office where visitors can get to know these three lines of work in depth and join in any of the training and organisation activities that are carried out.
