THE CITY IN REVERSE: DIAGRAMMING INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS

tents-title
What is community if not an intelligent system?
 
Toward a geophilosophy of grounding abstraction in new topologies and tempos: What forms of offline communication and clustered modes of computation prefigure sustainability in an imagined flight from the City? What ecology of practices for generatively unmapping terrains with the human-that-is-posthuman—an ethico-aesthetic being-for-the-world rather than a being-in-the-world?
Application deadline is December 15.

More information can be found here:

Please see our web site for more information about MLS, The City in Reverse, or our other events taking place across Canada in 2017-18. Please also share with friends, colleagues or students interested in Art, Philosophy, Kinetics, Community, Ecology & Micropolitics. Our events are open to participants from all educational backgrounds.
Murmur Land Studios is an experimental field school initiative offering event-based pedagogy in art, philosophy, movement, ecology and community for the post-anthropocene era. Our attempt is to curate spaces of creative inquiry which attract diverse makers, thinkers and doers together around thematic concerns relevant to the challenging times which lay before us.
Our residencies are held as camping-based opportunities to (mostly) gain a reprieve from the grid and reconnect with the land, oriented around morning sessions of critical dialogue in the style of seminars or roundtable discussions, followed by open studio sessions in the afternoon for event participants to pursue individual creative projects connected to the event theme. In July 2017 our theme will be The City in Reverse.

North Market Wharf Cultural Association Seeks Community Votes for Stage Refurbishment

Since 1788, North Market Wharf has been the city’s public waterfront space – where local served local. Merchants from across the Bay of Fundy brought their goods and wares to this space to traders from across the street, and across the world over to barter, haggle, gossip, and exchange goods for their families and communities throughout the region. At the turn of this century, the space has reimagined itself and has taken a new interpretation as it returned to its origins.

If Uptown Saint John is the heart of the city, then Market Square is its aorta; and, to play along with the metaphor then, the Inside Connection is its veins. Connecting a waterfront stage and arena; two multi-sport facilities; dozens of locally owned shoppes with internationally known brands and local products alike; two five-star hotels; multiple award-winning restaurants and pubs; our city hall; two national news outlets; international bank institutions and brokerage firms; thousands of heated parking spaces; three office towers with leading corporate, legal, telecommunications, and insurance firms, to name a few; and, the oldest market in the nation – this anchor has earned being bestowed as the lifeblood of the city.

This space where locals connect with neighbours and international visitors alike has come full circle. This time, the waterfront commodity is the vibrant arts&culture that pulses from what is locally known as the Boardwalk. “We applaud the vision of growth in our city; particularly, for our waterfront space of the Loyalist Plaza Capital Campaign. Pairing this stage refurbishment with the celebration of the legacy of Canada 150 as phase one of the full-scale development – along with the long-term goals of continuing to raise the bar with programming – is how we envision turning the conceptual future into the tangible today”, says Stephany Peterson, Director of the North Market Wharf Cultural Association.

With this approaching milestone for the nation, the not-for-profit organization, North Market Wharf Cultural Association, set its sights on celebrating the upcoming sesquicentennial with a meritorious legacy: a revitalized outdoor stage for our waterfront. Having been awarded the 2016 Faces of FUSION Community Building Award, the momentum has been building, and the recent selection as a national first-round finalist for the Aviva Community Fund is a welcomed opportunity to support efforts to position our city as a leader in arts&culture infrastructure and programming.

Welcoming consistent world-class entertainment to our waterfront, while maintaining the focus on supporting local, is the spirit of what this space has represented for centuries. The community can express its support for the project by participating in an online vote, available by a simple registration process at avivacommunityfund.org<http://avivacommunityfund.org/>, and continues until Thursday, October 28. Those interested in becoming involved beyond voting, please attend the informal Information Session Thursday, October 20th 4pm-5pm at McGill’s. “This will allow for you to be literally and figuratively in the midst of the project and have the vision shared for this stage refurbishment”, says Peter Stoddart, President of the Association.

FLOTILLA ­ Call for Partnership Proposals from Organizations and Collectives

FLOTILLA  ­ Call for Partnership Proposals from Organizations and Collectives The Association of Artist­Run Centres from the Atlantic hosts the biennial gathering of  artist­run centres in Charlottetown, September 21 ­ 24th  2017. Deadline for proposals: October 15, 2016

The Association of Artist­Run Centres from the Atlantic (AARCA) is seeking proposals from artist­run organizations and collectives for potential programming partnerships and showcasing opportunities during the biennial gathering of artist­run centres in Charlottetown in September 2017.

Partnerships with the Flotilla event will provide organizations and collectives an opportunity to reach a large and targeted audience, while experimenting or challenging their conventional programming. Some thoughts on potential partnership ideas are: ­

  • Creating a “Pop Up” of your organization in Charlottetown for the week leading into the event ­
  • Hosting an event(s) during the gathering, such as, but not limited to: a panel discussion, a dinner, a boat tour, a walking tour, a picnic, a debate, etc. ­
  • Online, interactive and new media presentations ­
  • Ephemeral public art, performance, etc.

AARCA is anticipating that partner relationships will be built on a cost­sharing and collaborative approach. Although the deadline for proposals is October 15, 2016, AARCA encourages anyone who wishes to make the Canada Council Project Grant for Organizations in the Visual Arts deadline (Sept 15 2016) to be in contact as soon as possible.

Description of the event:

Mustering the verve and warmth of an East Coast kitchen party, The Association of Artist­Run Centres from the Atlantic (AARCA) is gearing up to host the biennial gathering of artist­run centres in Charlottetown, September 21st ­ 24th 2017. The event will bring together artists, administrators, thinkers, curators and the public to consider the flexible, responsive and provisional forms of organization that are increasingly necessary for the sustained evolution of contemporary artist­run culture. Innovative platforms for artistic collaboration will be a key focus. The event will explore and share ideas around the theme Flotilla, a nautical metaphor that identifies a loose structure—boats and ships of varying dimensions banding together in open water—with a particular resonance in a maritime region, characterized by nomadism, temporary location, isolation and the presence of the sea as a shifting ground and a vehicle for exchange.

Stay afloat with Flotilla and connect with us online:

Flotilla will be making program and event announcements over the next year. Be sure to sign up for the Flotilla email list to stay afloat of the project’s progress, call for proposals and early bird registration savings.
