Thank you for your interest. Next public call for applications starts and will be for our December round of Papers.
From Papers’ host Dipika Kohli:
‘Some people had asked me why, exactly, I and doing this. Why, that is to say, I and designing spaces through things like ‘Papers’. Great question. Thanks for asking ! Short answer is: this is an opportunity for people to converse, and to do this across different kinds of boundaries (culture, nation, etc). Together. I’ve been lucky enough to get to go to 27 countries here and there, so I know the value of simply being in a different kind of ‘soup’, so to speak.
‘Everything you think you know already then can change; when you get to sample new flavors. The people included in this email are those I met on the road, mostly. So why not circle people into online versions of what I know how to do in real life, namely, gather us and create safe spaces for conversation. Deeply, not superficially. Right. Context. That’s what I promised in the subject line. So, to give you some context, I’ve updated our project page for S P A C E. It’s a crowdfunding page, and this is the link.. http://chuffed.org/project/spacethezine Perhaps that helps you see where these invitations fit in the bigger picture.
Apply below. Selected candidates will be invited to register. The fee for participation is $15/week.
