Crisis_mania is a project supported by Visegrad Fund and presents a collaboration between three very different groups from three countries. Col-me, Bratislava, Yoyo, Prague and Art Sector Foundation, Budapest.
These workshops are open for the public and we also invite interested people, to participate in one of the workshops. The workshop schedules will be out soon.
Four major issues are the starting point for thinking about the crisis and the organization of our own lives within it - "Food", "Housing", "Money" and "Travel". Each partner works out one of the topics and organizes a workshop on it, that participants from the other partners are attending. The workshop method is organized within the expertise of each organization - so one time it could be an artistic workshop, another time it could be a radio show, etc. The workshops will be held in English.
Yo-yo Prague will unearth mutually supportive connections between food and technics, which will also involve offbeat approaches to cooking.
The project TIK (Time Inventors' Kabinet) will take place over 2 years, as a collaborative action by 3 core partners(OKNO in Brussels, COL-ME in Bratislava and ESC in Graz) and numerous other contributors.
It is supported by the EACEA Culture Programme 2007-2013.
We will organize a distributed research and creation lab, with ongoing workshop points in each partner region, taking an ecological approach(in the etymological sense of the term : a study approach taking into account relations of organisms to
one another and to their physical environment and overall context) to
observing patterns in time and time control systems.
The project is realized (2008-2009) through a series of media art workshops in different Central European cities, and ending with a public presentation in Bratislava, probably in April 2008, during the Multiplace Festival. A schedule is going to be decided on early October in Praha, on invitation of the coordinator, http://iim.cz ...
It aims to utilize and strengthen the importance of collaborative models, team creativity, knowledge sharing and different aspects of interdisciplinary dialog within art and technology oriented educational institutions and socio-cultural initiatives.
The partners are:
Institut Intermedii Praha
Polish society for Electroacoustic Music, Krakow
AKU Banska Bystrica
Intermedia dept. Budapest
