Terrra Incognita. Tell Your story!
new media workshop
27 October-2 November 2003
We have the pleasure to inform you that the AltArt Foundation, with support from the European Cultural Foundation, organises the workshop Terrra Incognita. Tell Your story! which will take place in Cluj, Romania from 27th of October till 2nd of November 2003.
The Terra Incognita project series is committed to the discovery of new territories in cyberspace, by developing Internet content about socially, politically, ideologically or geographically isolated cultures - ones net-citizens aren't aware of. Terra Incognita 1 took place in 2000, and explored the cultures and civilization of Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India and Nepal. Terra Incognita 2, within a computer game-like framework targeted towards the general public- took place in 2001, taking a community of over 5000 members to various objectives in Cuba and Jamaica.
Terra Incognita Tell Your story! project focuses on exploring the diversity of the urban environment. The workshop will bring together new media artists from different countries in Europe. During the one-week workshop the participants will explore the urban landscape in Cluj, meet people and learn about their stories and then re-tell these stories using different new media art forms - short films, animations, photographs, hypertext, and audio sequences.
The project intends to encourage a complementary understanding of European culture as the rich cultural heritage of the past, by promoting the cultural values of today's Europe. We hope that participation in the project will help both artists and public appreciate more the cultural diversity of our living environment.
We would like to ask you to distribute this information to your colleagues, friends and to other professionals who might be interested in taking part and you consider appropriate candidates. We also include a banner whcich we would like to ask you to post on your website if complying with your web policies.
