Thanks to all the artists and curators who contributed to this event. Please join us next week to meet the  highly-motivated group of artists/curators who organize the gatherings in different locations around the  world (soon in Toronto, Istanbul and Sofia). The gatherings are often associated with art & technology  centers. By default this emerging network sustains open communication lines between these nodes.  We're meeting to develop a vision as a global network to highlight the creative work done in the field.

Sala-Manca Group performs Elephants on Metula's Nights and discusses their practice at our monthly  gathering. The Sala-Manca Group is comprised of Lea Mauas and Diego Rotman, Argentine-Israeli  artists who have been creating work in performance, video, installation and new media since 2000.  Sala-manca's works deal with the poetics of translation, Yiddish culture, the tensions between low-tech  and high-tech aesthetics, as well as social and political issues.

Saturday, September 24: 12:00-7:00 pm
How does each Upgrade form its presence and community? What is the potential of the network?  Join artists, curators and organizers for two panels, lecture and party.
