CALL FOR PROJECTS - Deadline 20 Oct. 2006

After a successful first edition, the STRP festival, which took place  
in Eindhoven, Netherlands at the end of March 2006, is launching a  
call for projects for its next edition, which will be taking in late  
April of 2007.

The focus of the festival is the common ground created at the  
intersection between art, popular culture and technology. The first  
edition which welcomed over 10 000 visitors, and received very  
positive attention from the press, made use of performances,  
installations, lectures, films, etcetera in order to convey this  

STRP takes place on Strijp-S, the 'holy' ground of the forbidden city  
of Philips, where in the 20th century numerous technological  
innovations were made which changed the world. A place where Einstein  
once worked, the first complete electronic music album was created and  
the collaboration between le Courboisier and Varese resulted in one of  
the most interesting amalgamations between art and technology, Le  
Poeme Electronique for the World Expo in Brussels (1958).


STRP is looking for projects, installations, or proposals that concern  
themselves with interactive art, robotics and/or Live Cinema (in the  
live cinema category we are looking for projects that rely on both  
performance and technology in order to become an audio-visual whole).  
All of the above in a context in which the artistic side is furthered  
by technology. This year we will also be paying special attention to  
projects, which involve light in their concept, composition, and/or
