<nettime-ann> Fwd: [NetBehaviour] CfP: running as creative practice (deadline 20 April)

Calling all artists, filmmakers, performers, walkers, runners,
anti-runners, sceptics and those allergic to exercise and everyone
else from all walks of life:

Hello. My name is Kai and I am an artist and PhD grad from the Slade.
I would like to invite you to join us at the inaugural Run Run Run: A
Festival Of Running 1.0. <> We
are calling for 8-minute papers, artworks, activities, participation
(deadline 20 April). I am also curating an exhibition entitled
'Running London' and am looking for artworks. One of the aims of the
Festival is to show that running - just like the cultural tradition of
walking that you may be familiar with - can be creative and can have
mileage as a subject matter and creative methodology. Feel free to
spread this CfP to your colleagues, friends and students. It will be
great if you could join us - via Skype even, if you cannot physically
swing by - in this party. Thank you.

What: Run Run Run: A Festival Of Running 1.0.

Where: Slade Research Centre, Woburn Square WC1H 0AB, London

When: 26 June Thursday 10am - 6pm.

Hashtag: #r3fest

not-the-run-of-the-mill conference about running, by runners, for
runners (and the sceptics). (Possibly) the first time on planet earth
that denizens of the academic world and beyond from all walks of life
and disciplines flock (and run) together to celebrate everything about
running. Are you ready? On your mark. Make a mark. Make history.

Earth Sciences, University of Glasgow. Professor Gregg Whelan / Lone
