The MEDIATERRA Festival is a festival for:

 the support of new-media artists working in the Mediterranean and Balkan
countries
 the effort to encourage energetic participation of the audience in
new-media art procedures

periphery
 the expansion of the idea of globalization through the development of local
character
 the provision of motives and opportunities for the initiation of
international cultural activities and new cultural production.

During the time of the Festival the International Symposium ''Pendulum''
will take place. The main objective of the Symposium, as well as of the
Festival, is to promote a creative cultural dialogue between opposite sides
and lead to the discovery of the unexpected.

The MEDIATERRA FESTIVAL 10, 11, 12 December 99, on the field of Web Art, is
accepting web based artworks and projects for participation to a virtual
exhibition and competition.
Deadline for Web Art submissions: 12/11/1999
The exhibition intends to realize a map of artistic works and intentions of
the Mediterranean and Balkan area.
We want to have an approximate view of the complex artistic image of this
area. How is configured by the local artistic intentions, will and feelings
toward the international net-space.
What will emerge out of the submitted artistic works? well expressed
cultural differences or unavoidable net-homogeneity?

In order to participate to the net exhibition and competition the
participants must come from the Mediterranean and Balkan countries.
The works can be located anywhere in the net.
The works we are more interested in, are works that use the net as the raw
material.
Independent and perverse works and projects based to the artistic (or
anti-artistic) possibilities of the net, are also welcome.
We are curious for works in local languages, related to the net space.
Commercial commissioned works will be excluded.

All the submitted and accepted works will be linked in the site of Fournos,
and exhibited during the three days of the festival. For that purpose, about
5 PC's and 5 Mac's and a projector for screening the works will be
available.
