   It is profoundly alienating. Buildings, roads, people
   have been dissappeared. They use words like
   “community” and “neighborhood” to manage our desire
   for a collective body. DO NOT WALK, DO NOT MINGLE, DO
   NOT WANDER ON FOOT -- unless you buy rich enough to
   have a sidewalk, or are hopping off the cruise for an

   evening’s entertainment along the Channelside-Ybor axis.
   How can we speak of a public space in our city? Where
   are the open spaces, social practices, spontaneous
   gatherings, outside of tightly regulated and
   choreographed parades? How else can we imagine being

   with each other – when being a Buccaneer just isn’t enough?
   The Carnival is about forgotten practices, erased
   histories, suppressed desires, possible futures. It is
   unleashed as a cacophonous collective voice. It is
   about occupying space, about physical and symbolic
   geography. It is trans-local, drawing lines of flight
   between Tampa, Bucharest, New York, Budapest, Denver,
   Bethlehem, Iasi, Cluj, London, Oslo... It is our call
   to reclaim the city.
   The Post-Industrial Carnival is a nine day event that
   follows up on last year's rowdy Industrial Carnival.
   It combines an art exhibition, video screenings,
   presentations, interventions, actions, performances
   and the production of ephemera - all in the area of
   the Tampa Union Train Station, its former Baggage
   Claim Building and adjacent public spaces.
