As part of our HLabX_Programme this will be the more durational research based camp, hosted in Okinawa, co-ordinated by Toru and dusjagr, to be held in Spring 2020. Main Activities in Okinawa from 25. March until 15. April. Some activites post-lab are also in preparations, trip to Taiwan and more field-research in Okinawa.


ハクテリア 合宿 - Oki Wonder Lab is a concentrated gathering of people working transdisciplinary who are interested in creative biological fields and any other areas which intrigue the critical interaction across art and science. In the past, Hackteria has been organising both carefully planned and/or spontaneous activities. The HackteriaLabs have been providing vessels which create international networks and potential collaboration to emerge and flourish. HackteriaLab's main focus always has been on the process of interaction between creative people, between professionals and amateurs, providing a stimulant for collaborative processes; for developing new ideas which connect and embrace the cultural diversities of the participants; and to address societal challenges through experiments with DIWO Culture, with material, technique, and nature through hands-on tinkering, curiosity driven research and never ending inquisitiveness.
