"The Society for a Re-Natural Environment, or SRNE, is a multi-faceted, re-environmental organization dedicated to identifying, protecting, and occasionally enhancing elements of wild, non-human nature that exist or have re-inserted themselves into human dominated habitats. The SRNE is dedicated to disseminating information regarding often overlooked, everyday experiences of this aspect of nature."

Call for submissions: Make an image representing capitalism!
US, Chicago
AREA Chicago #8 asked readers to define capitalism, resulting in 183 diverse responses. Now they are continuing this exploration by inviting you to submit (in person, via mail or email) a visual depiction or representation of capitalism. Feel free to keep it broad and define what it is, or be specific and show how it effects you and your community.

These visual representations of capitalism will be collected throughout AREA's current exhibition and event series "Everbody's Got (more) Money Issues" taking place at Mess Hall in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood throughout the month of August.

"Conflict Room is a dynamic, temporary platform for visual arts with an emphasis on different approaches around the nature of "conflict". The initiative is inspired on a video work by the Polish artist Artur Zmijewski : "Them"(2007), in which he sets up a situation where various ideological groups within Polish society are placed in a position where they can criticize, discuss and interact with each other.

CR has arisen from a group of people who responded to that idea by gathering artists and showing weekly exhibitions that raise questions and examine conflict in several ways over a period of 3 months."

18 May 2009
UK, Liverpool
An unconference is a participant driven face-to-face conference that sets its own agenda on the day and facilitates inclusive debate.

The UNsustainable UNconference comes out of FACT's response to Liverpool's Year of the Environment and the urgent need to establish a forum to advance the ecology and dialogue around the sustainability of society.
Held alongside Climate for Change, the UNconference invites communities of interest who have been engaged in this project and others who are operating through self-organising networks and alternative models of both capital and cultural production.

Join in for an experimental 'un'conference , 9 May, 12pm-5pm, to draw together Climate for Change activity and beyond - where participants set the agenda, and draft a collective wiki-manifesto throughout the day. Sign up and add yourself as a contributor participant on our wiki here and bring your laptops!

"Founded in 2006 the Studio for Urban Projects is a research and working group that perceives art as a means of advancing civic engagement and furthering public dialogue. Their interdisciplinary, collaborative, and research-based projects aim to provoke change by reframing our perceptions of the city and physically transforming elements of the built environment.

SUP recently opened a storefront in the San Francisco Mission District. It is best described as a “collective of collectives”, a place where like-minded San Francisco art collaboratives share a space for the staging of talks, film screenings, workshops, discussions, and meals."

The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
