Agorama is a critical exploration of digital network culture through public events, residencies and collective research groups.
We host regular p2p web meet-ups at our studio at Raven Row for anyone interested in the distributed Internet. The aim is to facilitate a community interested in experimenting, developing and maintaining a distributed Internet infrastructure. These happen on the third Thursday of every month at our space in Raven Row.
We run practice-led workshops and lectures aimed to support the knowledge and development of a p2p distributed internet. These range from basic html and markdown, self-hosting and distributing content using hypermedia protocols such as DAT or IPFS. All our resources for these sessions can be viewed, seeded and shared in Education.
It aims to support development and production of interdisciplinary works of art inspired by technology and peer-to-peer networks and to produce a three-month residency programme in which one artist per month is invited to use our workshop/studio at Raven Row. Each will receive technical support and mentoring from the team and will have access to its network of practitioners. The space will also be available to hold public events and the works produced will be part of a final online/offline exhibition.
