. 'As We Move' Container Workshop Series, Jamaica Call for Workshop Facilitators
Container Project is inviting individuals and small groups of digital artists, filmmakers, musicians and creative computer practitioners, with an interest in community and network practices to participate in the 5th Anniversary Workshop Series hosted at The Container in Jamaica in 2008.
'As We Move' is a concept for community project practitioners interested in sharing the use of new techniques and tools to extend creative projects. Areas of interest are: the use of digital media in storytelling; free and open source software and other digital resources; networks and online tools for communication and promotion of projects; and the development of network-related projects to explore social contexts.
The Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT) is supporting the project by providing a supplementary Professional Development Travel Grant for one Australian resident, to cover travel expenses to deliver a workshop. Funding applications are to be submitted to ANAT by the end of January 2008. For more information on the grant please visit www.anat.org.au.
'As We Move' is a year-long series of themed workshops, commencing in April 2008. Participants can stay in Jamaica from two weeks to three months. Interested participants should indicate the duration of time that would best suit the workshop and available dates.
There are limited places available, and selection of participants will be made on the basis of: · suitability of the project or idea; and · potential benefit to the local community and artists involved in the project.
If you are interested in delivering a workshop that meets with any of the expressed objectives, or have a workshop that you think the project would benefit from, you are invited to apply. Please send a brief outline of the project idea and how the expedition will fulfill workshop goals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
