Conflux 2007 Call for Proposals

I never post calls for projects* for two reasons: i’m too lazy to keep up with them and nettime-ann and networked_performance already do a great job at informing artists about residency and exhibition opportunities.

I do one exception for the Conflux festival because i had such a fantastic time there last year, it is THE most stimulating, fun and smart people-infested event i attended in 2006. Conflux takes place in Brooklyn and invites visual and sound artists, writers, urban adventurers and the public to explore the physical and psychological landscape of the city.

Conflux by definition is interactive, presenting projects that require a participatory audience. Festival events are free and open to the public and include lectures and panels, street games, public walking tours, workshops, tech-enabled expeditions, interactive performance, temporary public art installations and interventions, audio/video projects and more.

Please, please, join the fun in September. Christina Ray has just posted a call for proposals.

And be fast, the deadline is April 17.

* there’s a free and lazily updated “website/call of the moment” banner dedicated to that on the hompage.
