Hirikilabs, Digital Culture and Technology Citizen Laboratory | Tabakalera - Donostia / San Sebastián

Labs - Hirikilabs

Hirikilabs is a laboratory for digital culture and technology working on the social, critical, creative and collaborative use of technology. As a space for experimentation and prototyping it proposes activities related to the digital world, collaborative creation and citizen initiative and does so in the context of an international production centre for contemporary culture such as Tabakalera.

With its activity Hirikilabs seeks to stand as a space for reflection and experimentation around why, how and for what we use technology, as a Tabakalera resource for artists and creators to realize their projects and as a tool for free and open knowledge to inspire the general public and the lab community itself. 

It is a project created and developed in collaboration between Tabakalera and San Sebastian 2016 European Capital of Culture.
