The Free Art Bureau is a non-profit foundation active in and promoting new practices in open culture. Through a variety of activities and production practices, we are essentially concerned with technology, research, teaching & disseminating open practices, helping to empower and build creative communities that are free from the restraints of closed systems. We adopt a critical view of future possibilities in art and design in an open, social and gentlemanly manner.

FAB was founded in February 2011 by Mark Webster in a tiny headspace for potential disaster. With the positive help and support from a network of family, friends and busy-body creatives, FAB has grown in to a collaborative community blooming on various celebratory occasions throughout the year.



Research / Innovate / Create / Educate.
Openness is our belief. Ignorance is not an option.
