Education: Lectures & Workshops
During the summer of 2012, fourteen high school students from South and East Los Angeles took part in an experimental IMLab workshop. To produce the six-week exploration of the Los Angeles State Historic Park (LASHP) and surrounding neighborhoods, UCLA REMAP partnered with the UCLA Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS) and Public Matters LLC. Four days a week, the students worked with innovative mobile technologies developed by UCLA CENS, using them to document and collect data on the city.

Since the 2013-14 academic year, REMAP researchers and artists have been supporting the work of students in TFT's Interactive Digital Media (IDM) concentration. Under the supervision of REMAP's Fabian Wagmister and Jeff Burke, the students have developed and built interactive installations as their thesis projects, premiering at UCLA and IMLab.

In addition to co-creating performances with other RITL resident artists and enrolled students, REMAP researchers and artists led instructional workshops, introducing concepts and providing hands-on experience to artists from six continents, representing a wide range of traditions and contemporary approaches.
