Futuresonic 2008: Call for Submissions

futuresonic08.jpgFUTURESONIC 2008 – Urban Festival of Art, Music & Ideas :: May 1-4, 2008 :: Manchester, UK :: Call for submissions: Art and Conference Deadline: December 18, 2007; 5pm :: Music and EVNTS Deadline: February 7, 2008; 5pm.

Futuresonic has 4 strands: Art, Music, Ideas and EVNTS. Currently in its 12th year, the festival occupies the orbits of both music and digital culture. A focus in recent years has been presenting artworks in unexpected city spaces, and on social art and social technologies. The Futuresonic 2008 theme is The Social – Social Networking Unplugged. Digital culture burns bright with a vision of being not in isolation but in groups, placing the relations between people first. Beyond the hype lies ever greater isolation and conformity. Join us as we go in search of the social.

Web 2.0…
I take part
you take part
he takes part
we take part
you all take part
they profit.
(Slogan from Paris ’68, remixed)
