In the runup and development towards a first global ‘Summit of Critical Making’ to be held in Yogyakarta Indonesia in 2015, the newly formed Culture Arts Technology Collective CATEC in collaboration with r0g_agency and the HONF Foundation are hosting a [proto:type] event, The Yogyakarta Meeting on Open Culture and Critical Making.

[proto:type]Y2014 highlights the unique and innovative forms of open culture practiced in Indonesia fusing art, open technology and education with grass-roots community interaction. Hallmarks of this approach include the open source and peer-to-peer models of sustainability and collaborative enterprise. These form the modus operandi that defines HONF‘s work since it‘s inception in the late 1990’s, in which a  ‘hands-on’ or DIY approach to research and collaboration allows for a high level of experimental and academic exchange.
