The Change You Want to See is thrilled to host author and activist Steve Duncombe for a presentation and discussion of his acclaimed manifesto "Dream: Re-imagining Progressive Politics in an Age of Fantasy”. Beyond talk, this is also an applied strategy session – irrigate the irrational, practice your “spectacular vernacular”, exercise your imagination as we craft a creative street action in support of the Coalition of Imakolee Workers' campaign against McDonald's.
BYOB encouraged, as brainstorm and beer are like butter and bread.

This is Patrick May, the Director of Technology at Rhizome. I am writing to a number of leading arts and culture blogs to raise awareness of our Commissions program. The Commissions Program is one of Rhizome's most important activities, as it directly funds and promotes original works of new media art.
If this fits with the editorial policy for "post.thing.net", we hope you will share it with your readers. If you are an artist yourself, please consider submitting a proposal! The deadline for proposals is only two weeks away -- April 2, 2007.
The Whitney is hosting a series of lectures about the work of Gordon Matta-Clark on March 29th. There's also a special showing of his films on April 5th. The Films reveal much of what Gordon was trying to get at. Some are simple documentations but even in those films there are fantastic associations and leaps of connections to experimental film makers. The films are very important and should not be missed. Tickets need to be purchased/reserved online here.
