sampad Exchange Lab 2011

Exchange Lab was a programme of placements organised by sampad.

Throughout 2011, members of sampad’s staff and external artists working in the field of South Asian arts undertook two-week placements with Medialab Prado, in order to broaden how sampad works digitally across its artistic programme, and also in relation to education and outreach, audience engagement and development, and how it works operationally.

Medialab Prado is an organisation funded by the Department of Arts of the City Council of Madrid, aimed at the production, research, and dissemination of digital culture and of the area where art, science, technology, and society intersect.

The project was funded by the Leonardo da Vinci Mobility Programme which supports the development of skills and training. It funds work placements for trainees, workers and staff, and supports European projects to discuss common issues or develop training materials, courses and frameworks.
