CONFLUX FESTIVAL 2009 / Submission Deadline Extended
CONFLUX FESTIVAL 2009
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
NEW DEADLINE: AUGUST 15, 2009
ConfluxCity Deadline Extended!
"The sixth annual Conflux Festival, the art and technology festival for the creative exploration of urban public space, will take place September 17-20, 2009 and will be hosted by New York University.
In keeping with its commitment to urban artistic exploration, community participation, shared knowledge, and critical civic engagement, Conflux will organize a user-generated open format event on Sunday September 20th, 2009 from 10am-6pm.
Through an open submissions process, ConfluxCity will provide a platform for artists, urban geographers, technologists and others to organize and produce innovative activities dedicated to the examination, celebration and (re)construction of everyday urban life.
Drawing inspiration from Burning Man’s creed of radical self-reliance and BarCamp’s philosophy of openness and participation, ConfluxCity will adopt an open-space approach in which participants will be expected to organize, promote, and host their own activities and events. To facilitate this format, the Conflux Festival headquarters and website will serve as a central communications hub directing festival attendees outward to individual event websites and locations.
In response to the high level of interest in the initial call as well as requests for more time, the Conflux Team has extended the "ConfluxCity" submissions deadline through Saturday, August 15, 2009. We hope this extra time will allow all interested artists an opportunity to participate. Please help us spread the word."
To submit a proposal to participate in the festival, please see the submission guidelines at the Conflux Festival website: http://confluxfestival.org/2009/submit-a-project/.
The deadline for submissions has been extended to August 15, 2009.
