Selected projects will be developed under the supervision of teachers, technical assistants and an extensive group of collaborators.

Projects submitted to this call should take the following ideas into consideration: the development of strategies for public participation, activation of urban space through the screen, fostering public visibility of agents that normally have none, visualization of public collectives; interaction with portable devices, etc. All those interested in collaborating in one of the selected projects can sign in from January 5 through February 8, 2010.

Check the call guidelines and submit your project before December 10, 2009. No entry fees.
