The Festival on Water was established in 2005 and continues to serve as one of the largest, most diverse and dynamic platforms of debate, dialogue and celebration of water. It is sponsored by the Bangalore Film Society and various other organizations.

ION International Film Festival is a touring festival dedicated to promoting independent film, animation and narratives. It seeks to encourage new artists that are creating socially relevant art that positively affects the world.
As part of its effort to raise international awareness the festival takes place in a different country each year. Last year it was held in Dubai, UAE and this year the ION International Film Festival is coming to Lagos, Nigeria.
Applications are invited for an International Artists Residency @ Khoj, for public art projects exploring themes of environment & ecology in public spaces around Delhi for 4- 6 weeks in January 2010.
Delhi, the capital city of India, could easily qualify today as one amongst the world's most dynamic and complex urban settings in contemporary times. Characterized by its unique multi-layered
historicity and multiple urbanisms Delhi however, is facing a relentless pace of contemporary urban growth making it one of the rapidly expanding cities of the world.
City based research on 8 public sites in Delhi can be viewed from this link:
The City of Brea Art Gallery is producing an exhibition entitled “For Love or Money” featuring artwork from artists who work by day work as hired hands for design companies, advertising agencies, etc., yet by night exercise personal creative outlets.
“For Love or Money” will showcase work from both aspects of the artist’s career, with examples of personal art contrasted with their “for the money” work.
We are seeking submission from interested artists to be reviewed for inclusion. There is no entry fee; submissions will be judged by the merit of the work alone.
Entry Deadline : July 15, 2009
Exhibition Dates : August 1 – September 11
