Version >06 Call for Entries: Parallel Cities

"During the annual (Version >06) we engage in a dialogue about the possible futures that may interdict or provide alternatives to current social,cultural and political trajectories. Our fifth convergence, Version>06, is dedicated to the theme of Parallel Cities. Version will investigate and share local strategies and models to inspire action within local and global counter cartographies. . .

"We will convene in Chicago for a seventeen day open laboratory to activate our communities and amplify our ideas and practices. Version presents a diverse program of activities featuring an experimental art exposition, artistic disturbances, exhibitions, networked urban events, screenings, interactive applications, performances, street art, presentations, talks, workshops, art rendez-vous, parties, and action. Alternative spaces will be open for staging actions. Public spaces and corporate places will be terrains of intervention."

This sounds so cool. The deadline for applications is February 28. The festival takes place April 20 through May 6. Find out more here.
