Invitation to a Happening (Port Huron Project 1: Until the Last Gun Is Silent)

Sat Sep 16, 2006 00:00 - Wed Aug 23, 2006

Port Huron Project 1: Until the Last Gun Is Silent

A performance art event organized by Mark Tribe

Based on a speech given by Coretta Scott King at a peace march in Central Park on April 27, 1968, this event is the first in a series of remakes of historic protest speeches from 1960s and early '70s. Inspired by the Port Huron Statement, a visionary manifesto that helped launch the New Left movement in the United States, the Port Huron Project seeks to explore the role of protest speech in progressive movements, and to reanimate historic protest speeches so that they might galvanize a new generation of political activists. Each event will be staged at or near the site of the original speech, and will be documented using a range of older and newer media, from 16mm film to high-definition video. This documentation will then be distributed online as open source media and exhibited in various ways.

Free and open to the public

When: Saturday, September 16, 5-6 PM (rain date: Sunday, September 17, 5-6 PM)

Where: Mineral Springs field, just north of the Sheep Meadow at W. 69th St. in Central Park

Wiki Directory of Academic Art and Technology Programs


In 2004, I asked Michael Naimark to write an overview of academic art and technology programs as part of a proposal I was preparing for Columbia University. I wanted something comprehensive but with a point of view. With the proliferation and growth of academic art and technology programs around the world, Michael and I decided to use this material as the seed for a wiki-based directory of academic art and technology programs. This directory is now online at:

In its current form, the directory includes 38 art+tech programs, from the Kunsthochschule fuer Medien (Academy of Media Arts) in Cologne to the USC School of Cinema-Television Program in Interactive Media in Los Angeles. What you'll find at the above URL is only the starting point. We hope this directory will become a living resource for prospective students, faculty, and others.

If you are a faculty member, staff member, or student at one of these programs, please feel free to modify, update, or add information.

This directory is by no means comprehensive; if your program is missing, we hope you'll add it to the list!

Best regards,
