The Version>04: invisibleNetworks convergence
April 16 - May 1 , 2004 Chicago
DEADLINE EXTENDED Feb 15, 2004 for online submissions

The Version>04: invisibleNetworks convergence is an opportunity for 
creating connections between programmers, artists, scientists, 
musicians, filmmakers, activists, tactical media provocateurs, 
designers, architects, critical thinkers and culture workers of all 
kinds. The Version>04: invisibleNetworks convergence brings diverse 
groups together to share, communicate and organize while also asking 
participants to discuss these processes. Creating a tangible network 
of associations between participants, Version>04: invisibleNetworks 
fosters conversations, creative resistance and cultural

Version>04: invisibleNetworks seeks to make our tactics transparent, 
discuss our shared resources and divergent approaches. The 
convergence is an examination and exploration of our practices and 
will focus on the networks we form, deconstruct and utilize.

The Version>04: invisibleNetworks convergence encourages discussions 
of the methods and approaches we use to move into and out of the 
social, economic, artistic, political and technical networks we 
connect to and/or disconnect from. The Version>04: invisibleNetworks 
convergence mobilizes a diagram of these interconnections, entry and 
exit points and the transmissions that occur within them. Version>04: 
invisibleNetworks invites your interventions, activities, comments 
and participation in building these networks of resistance cultures.

++ Version>04: invisibleNetworks is also Announcing: PROJECT THREADS

Version>04 will feature several project and filtering threads that 
center on revealing practices of intervention, exposure and 
connectivity. The projects are also efforts in creating and expanding 
collaborative networks of resistance cultures and activities. Many of 
these projects allow participants to share their ideas and work 
without being physically present at the convergence.
