How can you become involved with FoAM? (prior to 2016)

  • Do FoAM's themes, methods or inspirations resonate with you & you'd like to share your own approaches, thoughts or projects? You could present at one of our Bite Size Lectures or Symposia.
  • Do you have a research idea or project in progress that could benefit from a discussion with people from different disciplines and cultures? You could join the conversations at a Research Gathering or the Long Now Meetup.
  • Are you motivated to learn new transdisciplinary techniques, be inspired and challenged by your peers, need a few days to take a break from your busy daily life, while improving your skills, expanding your knowledge, meeting interesting people and be open to surprises? You could join one of our participatory workshops (e.g Luminous Green, or Splinterfields)
  • Are you looking for a place to work on some concentrated creative research, supported by a network of generalists? You could apply for a short or long Residency at FoAM.
  • Are you an enthusiastic student looking for an internship? Become a FoAM apprentice.
  • Do you find FoAM's research questions interesting and have skills to contribute? Or, do you have a research idea or project of your own that is dealing with similar issues? Let's have a chat to see how we could share our skills or knowledge, or become involved in each other's

research initiatives.

  • Are you a good communicator and are curious about FoAM? You can help us spread the word - through any communication techniques and media available.

  • Do you enjoy pushing software to its limits and seeing where it cracks? We invite you to challenge us and hack our code…
  • Do you enjoy collecting and sharing curious facts, stories and other tangents? Please contribute to the Lybarinth, FoAM's growing online

source of inspiration & confusion, a jungle of articles, poems and references for all tastes and ages, to tantalise our curiosity and keep us aware of how much we don't know (http://lib.fo.am)
