Mediamatic workshops

Modelling interactive processes and user experiences

Mediamatic workshops are open to everyone who wants to explore the possibilities of interactive media projects. Whether professional or newcomer, we offer various models, which help you make interactivity work for your project.

Think Interactivity

The layout of each workshop follows an interdisciplinary approach. Since 1986 Mediamatic has explored the relations between different audio-visual media. Our research is also strongly focused on the relations of source code and appearance. Hence the workshops offer a unique perspective on the actual design and conceptual frames of interactive projects.

For our workshops we invite prominent makers and thinkers from different fields of research to present their work and views. An online reader of related projects and articles is provided for every workshop.

Design Interactivity

Our workshops on Interactive Film are based on the Korsakow Software, an editing tool developed by the University of Arts, Berlin, in cooperation with Mediamatic Amsterdam.


Mediamatic workshops have been held over years in various national and international locations. Read everything about them from former participants.


You are interested in the uses and concepts of interactive communication? But you don't know how to implement it in your website or make it work for your project or company? Mediamatic offers "Custom" Courses, especially designed for your communicative aims.


You want to get a quick insight but don't have much time? The Mediamatic CrashCourse is your solution. In one day, we brief you on the conceptual and practical stakes of interactive projects. Browse the overview. for our next "1-2-go tutorial."


Our 5-day workshops are aimed at people who want to apply the conceptual and practical frames to their projects. After a brief introduction, joint with presentations of guest speakers, you get your hands on our macs and your content. We assist you in finishing a first pilot, which you can further develop after the workshop.

What's going on?

Our research on new and interesting workshops is a constant "work in progress." Consult our brief overview for more information on current and upcoming workshops. Registration for workshops in the Netherlands and worldwide is possible online.
