Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory was established in 2010 as a successor to the Ljudmila - Ljubljana Digital Media Lab programme of Open Society Institute Slovenia (since 1994). It strives to connect research practices, technologies, science, art and civil society. It engages in the development and popularisation of open culture, free licences and software, and in new ways of distribution. It detects how the communication transformations affect the society and encourages innovative art practices. From 2011 Ljudmila acts also as a public lead of Creative Commons Slovenia.
