Mediatised Sites -
Call for Artists for Research and Development Project

Artists with an interest in exploring relationships between mediatised performance and site-responsive work are invited to participate in a research and development project that investigates notions of place, performance and mediatisation. The project will involve participating in a curated making process from November 2007 to April 2008.

The curation and performance process will take place through new media, such as free online social technologies, wikis, blogs, streaming video etc. The project will culminate in online and live performances on Fri 18 Apr 2008, and each selected project/participant will receive £100. Final year undergraduate students, post-graduate students, emerging and established artists are all encouraged to apply.

To apply to participate send:

-A short biography
-A rationale for your participation, including what you think you might bring to the project and what you hope to gain from taking part

Send the above, or any questions that you might have, to Kate and Tamara mediatisedsites@yahoo.co.uk
