WE FINALLY GOT THE CONCESSION FOR THE PIECE OF LAND IN SOUTH ITALY!!
check it on google map: monte serio, Noci, Bari,IT.
EDzine is planning to use this land for artistic purposes:
an international workshop of a week at the beginning of July 2013 open to:

2 photographers
2writers
2painters

During the staying the days will be roughly divided into:
-mornings start up with common breakfast
-each day as a group we will move into different sites of the region (chosen by the organizers) to explore and search inspirations and possible issues to work on.
-evenings common dinner

at the end of the 7th day all the works will be displayed into a temporary art exhibition.

the venue is rural, and many facilities are limited (the light will be provided by oil lamps and candles and by a limited source of electricity. The accommodations will be in tents or provisional structures. There will be anyway a stable toilet and kitchen, plus a typical old building: trullo)
All will contribute to the aim of being closer to the "land" with a reduced environmental impact.

If someone wants to come along because expects a nice holiday doing nothing, this is the wrong attitude.
The workshop aims to create bridges between people curious to improve themselves beyond a materialistic interest ,support human relationships and a genuine sense of community, respect for the nature and other cultures.

That's roughly the plan.

feel free to send your works, the open call starts now!
the workshop is free apart from travel and food expenses.
