DEADLINE: Oct.1, 2001

The Global Visions Festival (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) is calling all activist-artists to submit their photos, art and literature for presentation at the GV Free Media Exhibit (Edmonton Room, Stanley Milner Library) during the 2001 festival (Nov.8-11).

The Free Media Exhibit is about disseminating artists' works related to social change ˜ we're looking for activists' photos, zines, music, posters, handbills, and anything else related to local or global social issues. We are also looking for local bands to perform at the opening reception and during the festival in general.

The Free Media exhibit is intended to be an OPEN FORUM and ALL proactive community groups are invited to participate. Groups or individuals interested in speaking, giving a presentation, a workshop, a slide show, etc., are also welcome to contact us with your proposals/ideas.

There is no registration fee for submitting/participating.

* Contact Lyn at the ESPA at (780) 434-9236 or for more info or to submit your art, ideas and inspiration; you can also drop off or mail your literature (brochures, membership forms, etc.) for distribution/dissemination to:

Global Visions Office (Birks Building)
#253, 10113-104 Street,
Edmonton, AB,
Canada, T5J 1A1

Please make sure all submissions are labelled clearly with a contact name, address, phone/email, title (if applicable) and dollar value (for insurance purposes, if applicable). The exhibit will be mounted the first week of November and all *local* items will be returned to their owners post-festival; all *non-locals* (people residing outside of Edmonton) are asked to send a SASE or SAE & IRCs if they want their items returned, or contact Lyn to discuss alternate arrangements. The ESPA will already be exhibiting/distributing items recently sent to the small press library so people need not re-send the same items for this show.

We look forward to seeing your submissions! Thanks,
