REFF AR Youth Program is a special program of Education & Learning enacted by REFF to ensure the immediate distribution of REFF AR Drug to young generations.
The Program consists in a series of theoretical and practical workshops exploring the possibilities offered by fake, remix, recontextualization, plagiarism and reenactment as a tool for methodological reinvention of reality. During the workshops open source platforms as MACME and Bluetooth War are introduced to participants and installed on their machines.
REFF AR Youth Program was lunched in London as a part of the exhibit “Remix the World! Reinvent reality!” (Fourtherfield Gallery, 25th Feb – 26th Mar 2011). The agenda of the Fake Institution inspired approval and enthusiasm in the academic world. In the two weeks prior to the exhibition six different universities in London ware more than happy to guest REFF workshops and presentations. And more: the Program arrived directly to students movements, faithing against cuts in culture.
