OPEN Source Art (OSA) is presentation of the most interesting niche music and video projects which were created with the use of open source software tools. It embraces concerts, screenings and workshops with artists whose aim is to look at sound, image, motion and possibilities of their use in full, multidimensional perspective.

OSA promotes the use of alternative, interdisciplinary tools in self-expression and creation of public space and immediate surroundings. Open source software used by artists in their works constitutes a pretext for discussion on free media and freedom of art and life. Open source movement emerged as an opposition to privatization policy and denying access to software codes through patents and copyrights.

This Project is addressed at everybody who is interested in development in the fields of music and video art. OPEN nature of the project assumes a wide group of active audience members who can join the activities.
