We would like to invite you in August/September to Bratislava, Slovakia.

We are preparing two-week long workshop series (24.8.-7.9.2007),
theme for this year (as well as other years) is collaboration and
experimentation :)

The event is organised by people from Bratislava, Brno, Prague and
Budapest and there is a quite varied program. Most of the workshops
are 2-5 day long and will lead to final performance or other kind of public
output. Contentwise, neither spacelike the possibilities are not markedly
limited. Basically we are working with a post-industrial area
nearby holiday resort and lake Zlate piesky (Golden Sands) where two
maintained and one smaller unmaintained building are situated, given at
disposal by Tranzit initiative during the workshops. The largest building
consisting of four halls serves as a contemporary art gallery, another
two-story building houses a number of small artists' ateliers.

Idea of the project is meeting of students, graduates and teachers
from various schools and collectives, with no regard to whether they
work in art, technologies, social or other sciences. Diversity of
experience and background is expected to give way to dialogical,
interdisciplinary reflection and creativity.

* 25-29.8. Collaborative Video Performance facilitated by Martin Blazicek
