<nettime-ann> Vacancy internship Production Assistent | INC | Winter Camp

Dear reader,

The Institute of Network Cultures (INC) is a media research centre that actively contributes to the field of network cultures through research, events, publications and online dialogue. The INC was founded in 2004 by media theorist Geert Lovink, following his appointment as professor within the Institute of Interactive Media at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (Hogeschool van Amsterdam). The institute acts as a frame within several researches and meetings take place as well as publications are being published. 

From the 1 - 7 March Institute of Network Cultures will organize Winter Camp 09. With this event the INC intends to facilitate the transformation for a dozen existing and new networks around the topic of new media, art and 
culture. Some have emerged within the context of the INC, such as Video Vortex and MyCreativity, others have existed beforehand (Incommunicado) or are on the verge of becoming a network (Bricolabs). The format is a mix of a conference and workshop with the emphasis on getting things done. We will try to find a balance between intense sessions of groups, plenary sessions, mid-size meetings and lots of possibilities for informal gatherings. The maximum capacity is about 150 participants. The conference will most likely take place in Amsterdam at the Timorplein. The organization consists of the following team members Geert Lovink (UvA/HvA), Sabine Niederer (HvA) and Margreet Riphagen (HvA).
