HotHouse brings together artists, designers, curators and creative thinkers in a quest to develop models for sustainable environmental change. This “collective experiment” calls upon art and design to offer practical means of transforming spaces, environments, and even cities in ways that are enduring and energising, and that, most importantly, engage all sectors of the community.

"Passionate individuals and non-profit organizations from the region of Rennes, Brittany, France invite you to participate in the first Breizh Entropy Congress. This inter-disciplinary event focuses on free (as in freedom) creations and culture.

Through a meeting fostering open-mindedness, exchange of ideas and learning, we hope to show solutions to technical, social and political problems, and celebrate free, reclaimed and creative art and technology.

We happily welcome entropy, as a means to break artificial boundaries between disciplines and find unexpected ways of doing things that promote liberalization, sharing and reclaiming of technologies that traditionnally belonged to the realm of corporations and well-funded academic labs."

Imagining cities beyond oil
Various
"Post-Oil Cities is a project created and directed by Lluís Sabadell Artiga within Híbrids 2.0 which investigates the relationship between human beings and their surroundings from an ecological point of view. In addition to POST-OIL CITIES, Híbrids 2.0 has open lines of research on Art and Ecology, Perception and Landscape and Architecture and Environment.

The project uses the capacity of visionary creativity to think, imagine and design our cities, regions and areas beyond oil (Post-Oil), generate a new imagination for the twenty-first century that will be a reference in the present."

"The investigation of production, merger, dissipation and transformation of scales reveals a common denominator of the current processes of urbanisation. This symposium will discuss scales as designed, produced and contested, rather than given by nature, and it will question the ability of architecture and urbanism to reclaim the political economy of scale as their field of competence."

The Alphabet City series challenges us to rethink ideas central to our lives. In each volume writers and artists address single theme from many perspectives, revealing its processes and possibilities.

This issue, FUEL, examines the future of energy by asking about the politics, science, and history that have shaped the impending crisis of supply while describing possible futures. How will world work after coal and oil? Will the changes be slow or sudden? How might we steer toward a future without massive disruption to our economic life? FUEL addresses these and other questions about the necessary radical reinvention of energy.

Alphabet City is co-published with The MIT Press and appears each October accompanied by an arts and ideas festival in Toronto.

'Overcoming Dictatorships' is a framework for a two-year exchange between artists, poets and authors from various European countries about their experiences of the change from dictatorship to democracy, in particular after the opening of former communist countries since the end of the 1980s. In a number of meetings (held in the participating countries, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Italy and Germany) invited poets, writers and artists will present their work and exchange their experiences from the dictatorial/authoritarian period and show how the political changes have influenced their artistic activities.

The result will be an exhibition which will start in Birmingham (UK) and then tour the participating countries. The cultural transfer resulting from this project is meant to allow the banishment of prejudices and a better understanding between Central Eastern, South Eastern and Western Europe. Ultimately it is part of the construction of a common European culture.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
