Call for applications: The Danish Arts Council invites applications for an International Contemporary Art Festival in 2012

In 2008, the U-TURN contemporary art festival was held with support from the Danish Arts Council. Now the Danish Arts Council would like to establish a recurring contemporary art festival that will become a major event in the Danish art world. The festival is intended to create international attention, to stimulate the Danish contemporary arts scene, and to promote interest in contemporary art with the public at large.

Theme and geographical location
The festival should focus on how contemporary art works with topics that range from the political to the existential. The festival must be able to communicate this to the public at large and, therefore, must be visible and accessible to large, new segments of the potential audience.

In search of sounds!

This was posted on soundasart:

Hello, Soundasart--

This is DaveX. I've been tapped to curate/produce the first broadcast in
a set of four World Listening Project-themed Framework: Afield episodes.
I'm going to assume you're familiar with the radio show-- moving on. The
agreed-upon thematic hook for this particular episode is "Sounds You
Might Have Heard," which is rather open-ended.

I'm seeking submissions for this broadcast, and things are moving a tad
slowly for my taste-- help me get things rolling more quickly by getting
in touch. Thanks!
