April 16 - May 1 , 2004 Chicago

DEADLINE EXTENDED Feb 15, 2004 for online submissions

[plugin/connect to/engage w/] this year's Version>04: invisibleNetworks convergence!

The Version>04: invisibleNetworks convergence is an opportunity for creating connections between programmers, artists, scientists, musicians, filmmakers, activists, tactical media provocateurs, designers, architects, critical thinkers and culture workers of all kinds. The Version>04: invisibleNetworks convergence brings diverse groups together to share, communicate and organize while also asking participants to discuss these processes. Creating a tangible network of associations between participants, Version>04: invisibleNetworks fosters conversations, creative resistance and cultural action.

Version>04: invisibleNetworks seeks to make our tactics transparent, discuss our shared resources and divergent approaches. The convergence is an examination and exploration of our practices and will focus on the networks we form, deconstruct and utilize.

The Version>04: invisibleNetworks convergence encourages discussions of the methods and approaches we use to move into and out of the social, economic, artistic, political and technical networks we connect to and/or disconnect from. The Version>04: invisibleNetworks convergence mobilizes a diagram of these interconnections, entry and exit points and the transmissions that occur within them. Version>04: invisibleNetworks invites your interventions, activities, comments and participation in building these networks of resistance cultures.

++ Version>04: invisibleNetworks is also Announcing: PROJECT THREADS

Version>04 will feature several project and filtering threads that center on revealing practices of intervention, exposure and connectivity. The projects are also efforts in creating and expanding collaborative networks of resistance cultures and activities. Many of these projects allow participants to share their ideas and work without being physically present at the convergence.
