Event: Conflux Festival in NYC
On Sep 11, the fifth annual Conflux Festival will take over NYC, bringing together creative-minded people from around the world interested in exploring and discussing technology, culture, and urban space. The festival, headquartered at the Center for Architecture in Greenwich Village, includes lectures, art installations, ‘street art interventions’, performances, tours, workshops, film and music designed to celebrate and challenge how we think about the ecology of the city. Via Flavorpill:
Converse with keynote speaker Chris Carlsson (co-founder of Critical Mass and editor of Processed World), participate in Twiceband’s staging of John Cage’s 49 Waltzes for the 5 Boroughs, and take a tour of New York’s underground rivers and streams. Other projects include a group tango across the Brooklyn Bridge, a pollution-sensitive corset, and a portable park.
How’s that for a weekend.
A two-day pass runs for $50, while half-days go for $15.You can buy tickets here.
