Play-Jurisms: A Weekend of Creativity! Copyright! Ethics! Appropriation!

Sat May 21, 2011 13:30 - Sun May 22, 2011

Cambridge, Massachusetts
United States of America

Curious about how copyright and alternatives impact your creative work? Wondering how other creatives are using or misusing copyright? Want to know how to protect your work from being stolen-- or how much of other people's works you can include in your own?
       Play-Jurisms is a 2-day series geared towards creatives. Over the
weekend of May 21 and 22, 2011, we'll have a number of events that address these important, and often confusing issues.
Speakers include Intellectual Properties lawyers; copyright and copyright-reform activists; and artists and musicians who question the way things stand right now. We’ll also screen a documentary about  Negativland called “Sonic Outlaws”; see a brand-new multimedia performance by Gang Clan Mafia; and hear the sounds of Factory Seconds, for whom all songs are folk songs.
All events are free. See our website for full listings.


Call For Submissions: "i left this here for you to read"

Sorry, the deadline is wrong. It was May 31 2009. Sorry for the confusion.


"i left this here for you to read"

Fri Dec 31, 2010 00:00

We're currently looking for material for our magazine, "i left this here for you to read".

About this magazine
Each month or so, we release a new issue of “i left this here for you to read.” We then leave them in public places (such on park benches, on buses, in airports and dentists’ offices...) for anyone to take—free of charge.

Currently, we distribute our magazine in Boston, New York, and LA. We only print about 50 copies of each issue, and don’t reprint any past issues. Sorry, we can’t mail you any copies—we only send them to contributors.

Would you like to submit something to our magazine?
We will automatically include anything we receive, as long as it fits into the following guidelines:

-Written pieces—must be no longer than 400 words.
-Images—must be black and white (aka “gray scale”).
-Physical objects—must be flat, or very thin, and smaller than 8 ½” x 5 ½”. They must be able to fit into a small envelope, or a two-inch square plastic bag; or must be able to be stapled or taped to a page. All objects must be nontoxic, and legal. (Note: if you would like us to include physical objects in our next issue, you must mail us 50 copies of said object. Or 50 different ones.)

All contributors will receive 2 copies of the issue that their material appears in. The will also have their name listed on our website (unless they don’t want their name listed on their website).

Please email submissions to i.left.this.here@gmail.com

Kisses and break-ups

Mon Sep 29, 2008 00:00 - Mon Sep 29, 2008

Call for participants: “Kisses and break-ups”

“Kisses and break-ups” is documenting the world’s kisses and break-ups, in order to better understand them.

More specifically, we've been collecting:
(1) information about the first time participants kissed any one of the people they have kissed; and
(2) information on participants' break-ups.

The final product will include maps and charts; an interactive website; and free walking tours.

Would you like to help by sharing information on your kisses and break-ups? We hope so!

To view the maps that we’ve created from the data we’ve received so far, click here: http://timdevin.com/knb-maps.html
