Workshop/Autodocumentary About Coworking by KS12

We have talked about this with Pati and Gabriel from KS12 for a long time. We always wanted to do a small documentary about betahaus, coworking in general, the beta principle, the people behind this and how this does look and feel from the inside. Now it's real and we are ready start "autodocumenting" guided by KS12, together with the Open Design City crowd, the betahaus people and everybody else who embraces the cowo-spirit in and around betahaus.

And this is how it goes (by Gabriel and Pati):


  • Workshop One: 13 January 2011, 7 pm (Open Design City)
  • Workshop Two: 24 February 2011, 7 pm (Open Design City)
  • Final Video Screening: 28 March 2011, 7 pm (Open Design City)
