Workshops Crea-Recycling for children at Primary Schools in The Netherlands

Workshops 'Crea-Recycling' at several schools in the Netherlands, as well as with children from refugees in the Netherlands. Different groups of children, from 6 to 12 years old.

In these workshops children learn to 'work with what they have'. How can you use the materials that are all around you, to create things that are useful, nice and fun to play with? Via many creative exercises the children experiment with finding different possibilities and different solutions to create the things they would like to make with the materials that they have.

Workshop HTML/Webdesign for students at DOGtime, Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam

Workshop HTML with students from the first and second year of DOGtime at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.



I had asked the people at the Rietveld for a whiteboard to use during these workshop. When I entered the classroom I found a blackboard with crayons in the room. So for four evenings I was teaching HTML to students by writing all the code with crayons on a blackboard. It was a great feeling to do so!

Workshop webdesign 'Net and Nature' at styrian summer_art

For the first time Cym gave her well-known workshop webdesign as part of the Styrian summer_art festival. In her workshops Cym usually motivates the participants to use the local surroundings as a start for creating their first website. Besides carefully explaining all the basics of HTML, she encourages the workshop participants to go for a walk and collect local impressions that, together with the first basics of HTML, will merge into a website.

The results of this workshop were presented on July 13, 2008 in the castle in the center of Pöllau.

Workshop Webdesign at Spektral - Graz, Austria

The main goal of this workshop was to create a website to protect the trees in the Stadtpark in Graz from being cut down by the local government. The workshop participants were very motivated, but I am not sure if the website was ever finished. The trees in the Stadtpark were cut down without a reason, about half a year later.

Connected 03 - Forum Stadtpark, Graz, Austria & Pekarna, Maribor, Slovenia

"Der 3. Raum // Tretji Prostor" (The 3rd Space)

A workshop that started with the question how to connect Forum Stadtpark in Graz and Pekarna in Maribor. The project started as a workshop by Cym, but developed into a big happening in the Stadtpark, including a demonstration 'The city belongs to us' with live music, djs, live actions and a fireshow.

As a result of the workshop we built a huge tunnel under the Forum Stadtpark that was a symbolic connection from Graz to Maribor. Somewhere in the middle of the tunnel under the Forum Stadtpark was the border. After coming out of the tunnel on the other side you would find yourself in an atmosphere similar to Pekarna in Maribor, with people around you speaking only Slovenian.

Among the participants during this project were son:DA. One of their ideas during this workshop was an installation with electric plugs and sockets. They made interesting sketches during the connected project which they developed later into many interesting projects in many different places.

Workshop Webdesign at Forum Stadtpark - Graz, Austria

This is the beginning of the 'Shark Arbeitsraum', the workingspace that I set up at Forum Stadtpark. The computers were donated for creating a social working space with free internet connection. For about two years I was maintaining the working space with the name 'Shark' at Forum Stadtpark. Later I donated the computers to the African restaurant NIL, a project that emerged from the Baodo group. In NIL the machines were just standing around because nobody wanted to use a linux machine, until I picked the machines up again about a year later. Only one of the machines is left now, and will be used in the connected:07 project at Wd8 in September 2007.

Workshop HTML at Shadow Casters - Bologna, Italy

Remake of the Shadow Casters workshop in Summer, this time in Bologna, Italy. It should've been as nice as the workshop in Zagreb, but you cannot recreate an atmosphere. It was winter in Bolonga, it was so cold and the streets were full of hectic people doing their last-minute Christmas-shopping. But nonetheless we tried to make the best out of it. Somehow i don't remember much of this workshop.. but i hope that the students learned anyway how to make a website..

We stayed a few more days in Bologna after the workshop. The nicest part of this small holiday was probably the escape to Rimini for an afternoon on December 28, 2001.

Workshop HTML with Baodo - Graz, Austria

Workshop HTML/Webdesign with members of the african artist group 'Baodo'. This workshop was given in the computerspace of the refugee house in Graz where most of the participants were living at that time. We used the Stadtpark in Graz as main content for the webpages. We presented the websites during an event at Forum Stadtpark on October 02, 2001.

Following the presentation in Graz we were invited to Linz to present the websites at Kunst Raum, on October 23, which was a very nice excursion for all of us.

Workshop HTML at Shadow Casters - Zagreb, Croatia

Workshop HTML/webdesign as part of the 'Shadow Casters' project in Zagreb, Croatia - July 2001. In this workshop we were exploring the city of Zagreb and transforming the experiences into a website.The total project was a combination of video, webdesign and theatre.

The workshop took time in the middle of Summer and on one of the afternoons it was so hot that i decided to take the students to the park instead of spending the day in the computerspace. We had the workshop webdesign in the park that afternoon. I asked the students to collect materials found on the street on the way to the park. We used these found materials together with branches found in the park to create and discuss different structures for the navigation of the website.

Webversenken/Sink the Web - Ibm, Austria

Workshop HTML/webdesign with local inhabitants of a small village in Upper Austria called 'Ibm', as part of the project 'Webversenken/Sink the Web' during Festival der Regionen 2001.

The project lasted more than a month. Three different groups of people contributed to the website: the children from the local school, the artists living in the area and a group of writers/poets. Each group had a different section. The main frame for the website was created by cym. The first page is ramdomly put together from three contributions, one from each group.

Workshop HTML at Forum Stadtpark, Graz, Austria

The first 'official' workshop webdesign in Graz by Cym. I was not really sure if I should offer the workshop, since I had never done it before, but we decided to just send out the information and see what happens. More than 30 people applied for the workshop...

We had to split the participants into 2 groups. And since then I have been doing workshops HTML/Webdesign regularly at all different kinds of occasions.

We connected this workshop with the Artist in Residence project of a group of Japanese artists that was taking place in Forum Stadtpark at the same time, which gave the participants of the workshop a lot of nice materials to create their first webpages.

Workshop HTML in Odžak, Bosnia & Herzegowina

Workshop HTML/webdesign with pupils of the local secondary school in Odzak, Bosnia & Herzegowina - December 16-22, 2000.

Main goal of this project was to construct a multi-media classroom in the school with old computers that we had collected before in Austria. As part of the project we did a workshop webdesign with the students. We asked them to create a website about their town, Odžak, especially describing what they think could be done to make the very destroyed town a better place again.

Almost all of these kids spent a big part of their youth in Germany before returning to Bosnia after the war. They were very enthousiastic to write the texts on their first website in German. The stories on this first simple website were all written by themselves.

Workshop HTML at hEXPO - Koper, Slovenia

My very first workshop HTML at MKC and PINA in Koper, Slovenia. We started outside in the garden and then moved to the computers in the PINA center. One of the workshop participants was Rahel Zweig, who made some very nice pages during this first workshop, which described the Koper-hEXPO atmosphere very well.

Workshop HTML at Radio Študent - Ljubljana, Slovenia

My very first workshop HTML took place in April 2000 at Radio Študent.

For about one or two hours during one of the hEXPO preparation meetings I tried to give an introduction to HTML to the hEXPO organizers. I am not sure if I was really successful this evening. The workshop ended in a heavy discussion why they couldn't do everything in Dreamweaver. (It wasn't Dreamweaver but Adobe PageMill, a similar program for Macintosh that was quite fashionable at that time.)

Nonetheless I was asked to repeat my workshop HTML during hEXPO that summer. So my very first 'real' workshop HTML took place in August 2000, in Koper, Slovenia.
