PARTICIPATORY DESIGN CONFERENCE 2006 Art Track
Trento, Italy

URL: http://www.participart.org/

ParticipART is an exhibition and discussion platform on participative
forms of digital art to be held at MART (Museum of Modern Art of Trento
and Rovereto, Italy) on 2-4 August, 2006.

ParticipART is the novel Art Track of the PARTICIPATORY DESIGN CONFERENCE
2006, "Expanding Boundaries in Design", which will take place in Trento,
Italy on July 31-August 5, 2006.

Since 1990, the PARTICIPATORY DESIGN CONFERENCE (PDC) has been focusing
on the design and development of computing and information technologies
in diverse social contexts, with the active collaboration of people who
use or are affected by these systems.
Over the years, our design discussions have been enlivened and enriched
by the efforts of musicians, architects, computer graphic designers and
artists working across a wide range of disciplines. 
Artists presenting their work at PDC 2006 will enjoy a rare opportunity
to reach a technically expert and socially engaged community of
practitioners.
