RAM - Re-approaching New Media is a collaboration project based in Northern Europe run by separate organizations which all are exploring new media in relation to the artistic and cultural field.
RAM creates an international network of artists, technicians, designers, media activists and cultural practitioners and theoreticians with an array of skills in new technology, and provokes a productive and critical dialogue and an exchange between different artistic cultures using "new media" as tools in their art practice, but also to encourage the creation of new tools and forms of expression/communication.
The RAM workshop series provides the platform for the first annual event of VILMA - Vilnius Interdisciplinary Lab for Media Arts.
