Hello there!

updates on REFF - RomaEuropaFAKEFactory.

The REFF project just became an official initiative for the European Community's Year for Creativity and Innovation.

A first showcase event will be held in Rome on May 28th, inside the Live Performers Meeting (LPM 2009 ), where we will host the day for digital freedoms. The event will also feature the first meeting for the Table for Digital Cultures of the Italian Senate's Cultural Commission of which REFF was the main promoter.

The final event is currently being scheduled for October/November 2009 and it will be setup across several venues in Rome, London and New York.

A publication is being prepared, with contributions by the participants to the scientific committee (see full list in the website), and it will also feature a catalog of the most significant works submitted to the competition.

The competition itself is well on its way, and you can still join in. Deadlines are as follows:

June 21st: deadline for 100Cuts (videoart), 100Quotes (literature), 100Samples (music)
July 31st: deadline for 100Flashes (GIFart) and 10Spaces (Design, Architecture, Landscape)

Join in! We're having a ball! :)

take care,
