Place [Maker] Space

September 19, 2013 - 5:00pm to September 22, 2013 - 3:00pm

Programming category: 

Place [Maker] Space is a 3-day interdisciplinary convergence for makers and researchers to dialogue and exchange practices that address notions of place.

Using Earthdance and its surrounds as a point of departure, Place [Maker] Space participants will invent practices, adapt technologies, analyze problems, devise experiments, and craft performances as a means of proposing “solutions” to place that privilege the embodied or experiential.

We are inspired by eco-hack and other “hacks”, where people from a wide range of disciplines gather to work toward solutions to common problems. In this model, cooperation and collaboration fuel innovation and broaden understanding. At Place [Maker] Space, technologies originating in dance, performance, visual art, ecology, geography, community organizing, architecture, and other forms of place-related making and research will serve as our tools of engagement with each other and our location.

Deadline to apply is June 1st.  Visit www.placemakerspace.com for more information.
