Description of the 4 workshops:
WORKSHOP 1 : OPEN CONTENT
What we hope to find with www.becoming.be, is not just new prototypes
for making media online, but essentially a tool, with which we can
contribute better and more actively and creatively to already existing
systems, around which fellowships are being formed. Open content is

WORKSHOP 2 : MEDIACREATION IN NETWORK CONTEXT
We think that the strength of having an audiovisual work on the Web does

(eventually streamed) result, but out of online prototypes, that offer
entries for visitors to get into the ways and procedures that finally
resulted in the final work.

Invest this context : mEYEtime, as site and as surveillance (game)
WORKSHOP 3 : NARRATIVE STRUCTURES IN RICH INTERACTIVE ENVIRONMENTS
The latest technological tools (sms/gsm, wireless
computing/communication) point to the development of new types of
interactions in an enhanced media and network environment. This is the
context for the development of innovative playgrounds which explore new
patterns for sharing content, for exchanging experiences and practices,
and for interacting together. What type of scenarios, how to create
dynamic interactions triggering "interesting" behaviors and exchanges,
how to design system of rules for these specific worlds embedded in the

WORKSHOP 4 : ENHANCED TV
Imagine a world where there are two kinds of media power : one comes
through media concentration, where any message gets authority simply by
being broadcast on network television; the other comes through
grass-roots intermediaries, where a message gains visibility only if it
is deemed relevant to loose network of diverse publics. Broadcasting
will place issues on the national agenda; bloggers will reframe those
issues for different publics.
