Call for the development of projects:

* Due to program readjustments the open call for projects has been delayed. We will inform you about the new dates soon. Sorry for the inconveniences

There will be an announcement soon of a call for the development of 2 projects open to collaboration, related to any of the contents comprising the four main theme blocks of this first series on the "Poetics of Connectivity": 

-Photography and Internet
-Video and Internet
-Aesthetics and Art Theory in the Age of Global Networks 
-Literature and Internet / Literature about Internet
 
The projects presented can be of any type, although the way they are carried out should be based on the collaborative work methodology which is customary in all our workshops.

Selected projects will be carried out over a maximum period of five months, with the help of the series organizing team and that of all those persons who, through the call for collaborators, have shown an interest in participating in the projects’ development. There will be a small budget for the development of the projects.

The authors of the selected projects should commit to making periodic public presentations demonstrating the progress of their project, which will coincide with some of the meetings scheduled for the discussion groups.
