This call will select eight to ten projects for the exhibition in Tweak festival 2010. These projects will be developed in a collaborative workshop taking place September 13 - 17, 2010. The objective is to explore the relationship between technology and immersive experience, and to investigate the potential of new forms of audience participation. Selected projects will be developed under the supervision of tutors, technical assistants and an extensive group of collaborators.

This call is addressed to artists, scientists, designers, students, anthropologists, architects, educators, activists, hackers, and any other person interested in the subject.

Proposals can be submitted individually or collectively. Each participant or team can submit as many projects as they like. Selected projects should be open to the participation of other collaborators interested in contributing to the development of the piece during the workshop.

There are two ways of participating in the workshop:
1 - as project promoter

Once the projects have been selected, a second phase will take place calling those interested in participating as collaborators in producing the proposals. The call for collaborators will be published June 23rd, 2010 on this website.
