Every January, MIT has an "Independent Activities Period" in January, between semesters. This is an opportunity to host unique class offerings and workshops. House_n invites MIT students, MIT faculty and staff, and members of the public to attend and participate in brainstorming sessions, media presentations, and design workshops.
In the past, we have offered the following IAP workshops:
- Visions of the Future: Screening and Making Concept Videos (2004)
