OCF12 Theme: URBAN CURRENTS
“Our City Festival 2012 takes as its point of departure the movements within the urban environment: the flows between the people, resources, environment, and landscape of the city within the context of its urbanization and its impact on greater Cambodia.”
We welcome proposals from artists, architects and other sectors that explore ‘urban currents’ as movement, changes, shifts, exchanges in and with the city; affecting its people, structures, environment, culture, society, economy and communication.
To make the program as exciting and challenging as possible, we are interested in ideas from different disciplines and formats: exhibitions, interventions, talks, films, workshops, tours, walks, classes and others!
Please send us 300-500 words (Khmer or English) describing your idea and include the following details:
• Event type (ex: exhibition, performance, film, etc.)
• Possible venue/location
• What kind of support would be required?
• How your idea relates to the theme?
• Your contact details
EXTENDED Deadline: Saturday 30th June, 2012
Be part of Our City and bring your ideas to the JavaArts office (56 Sihanouk Blvd) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Participation in the festival is based on relevance with the theme, overall appropriateness for the festival program and available resources.

In addition to receiving feedback on proposals, the aim is to develop ideas by thinking through venues and other logistics, possible collaborations and act as a connecting point between the projects.
