Call for Film/Video Submissions- Quick Response Needed
The Number 8 Collective is currently in residence at Casa Tres Patios arts
project space in Medellin, Colombia. We have been asked to collate a series
of short films/videos around the thematic of water to screen at a film
evening evening at Casa Tres Patios. This is part of a larger project, see
below for a bit more detail. So send us a link so we can preview you work
if you are keen in participating. We need link by Friday 1st June. From
there we will be in contact with Drop Box details.
The Un Litro de Agua project premise is to initiate and support dialogue
between Colombian, New Zealand artists and the wider public through a
series of collaborative arts events.
Through the thematic of water, Un Litro de Agua explores similarities and
differences between cultures with an emphasis on shared aquatic
environments locally and globally. The reflexive nature of the project
draws together artists with an eclectic range of concepts as diverse in
origin as they are in their rendering.
Un Litro de Agua is a Number 8 Collective project supported by Casa Tres
Patios, Medellín, Colombia.

I'm doing some research into, broadly, media art + the city: media artists and projects that engage with public space and / or the fabric of a city,
and I'm hoping to do some crowdsourcing / discussing here : )
Obvously as I'm in Christchurch I'm particularly interested in projects that relate to recovery, remembering, reimagining, and looking to the future, but any suggestions, recommendations, reflections would be most appreciated!

We are pleased to let everyone know that the SCANZ 2013 3rd nature symposium (and exhibition documentation) will form the contents of a special edition of Leonardo Electronic Almanac. There is call information at: http://www.intercreate.org/scanz2013-3rdnature/scanz2013-3rdnaturehui/
Call for abstracts
Integrating indigenous perspectives with creative, environmental, scientific and academic views on reality is essential to our future. We must work together to resolve the issues facing humanity. SCANZ 2013: 3rd nature will bring together diverse people to discuss and celebrate how to approach working together across cultures and disciplines.
Who should attend?
Tangata whenua, indigenous peoples, scientists, artists, environmentalists, academics, philosophers, educationalists, musicians, teachers, technologists, and those concerned about sustainability, the future of Earth and humanity.
The first day of the hui will be held at Owae marae. Keynote speakers presently confirmed are Dr Te Huirangi Waikerepuru (Aotearoa New Zealand) and International Research Fellow Nina Czegledy (Canada & Hungary). The second two days will be at the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki campus.
There are four types of presentations which will be reviewed by robust process: peer reviewed, panel presentation, solutions and individual.
Abstracts (500 word maximum) are due May 15th 2013. There are both peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed tracks.
We are using the conference management system Easy Chair. You need an Easy Chair log in. The page to go is: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=scanz2013
Further information covering submission process is available at the Intercreate web page. While this part of the process is formal, the intention is to mix session types over the three days. Some will be informal.
Above all it is the dialogue that will be interesting.
Best and we hope to see you there.
