Dear colleagues,

I wanted to share a project proposal I have drafted for establishing a
Media Lab focused on empowering cultural and creative industries in
the Global South with generative AI capabilities.

While I do not currently have the means to implement this lab myself,
I hope this proposal document may serve as a useful starting point or
source of ideas for anyone interested in establishing similar
initiatives oriented towards empowering local creative communities
with generative AI.

The proposal covers key aspects like objectives, methodology,
timeline, estimated budget in euros, etc. It is available here:

I openly share this proposal under a Creative Commons CC0 1.0
Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain Dedication license so you are
welcome to reuse or adapt any portion that may be helpful in your own
projects. Although this is just a conceptual document, I'm happy to
provide any additional context or answer questions to the best of my

My goal is to contribute ideas and momentum towards seeing more
accessible medialabs emerge across the Global South to explore
generative AI. If this proposal helps inspire or inform real projects
in any way, I would consider that a valuable outcome.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any feedback or
thoughts on the proposal. I'm eager to see where others may take these

Best wishes,
