TEXTS & RESEARCH
vitalspace.org has already established (go to TEXTS) a tradition of composing texts that combine the artistic perspective with political economics and other forms of engagement with the issues central to our platform. In this context, vitalspace.org invites text submissions from anyone interested in contributing to these issues. Submissions should be made in Word and should include a title and a 200 word abstract. Initial submissions should be confined to 3000 words.
vitalspace.org has organised, and plans to continue doing so, workshops that pursue our agenda of enhancing awareness on the issues affecting Nature and Humanity (go to WORKSHOPS). Proposals for new, innovative workshops are invited from artists, activists and academics.
