* Other Institutions and Initiatives *

* Tallinn Summer Academy
The E-media centre of the Tallinn Art University (Estonia), and SCAN, an
education, research and production centre for new media in Groningen (The
Netherlands) are investigating the possibility to organise a summer academy
in Tallinn in 1996 in the field of digital media. The aim is to educate the
media-educators out of Estonia and the Baltic Region, who can then transfer
the skills and knowledge acquired locally. Furthermore, the possibilities
will be investigated to develop this educational co-operation in the future
on a more substantial and structural basis. These activities are a
follow-up to the successful 'Interstanding' conference on networking and
interactivity, which they jointly organised in Tallinn, November 23-25,

*Siberian Deal wins Prize at Videofest Berlin 96
Kathy Rae Huffman and Eva Wohlgemuth have won the Multimedia Prize of the
1996 Videofest Berlin with their communication and cultural exchange
project "Siberian Deal" which involved travelling to Siberia, meeting real
people who had been contacted through a wide network of e-mail and friends,
bartering Western goods and objects for Siberian ones, and collecting
stories and images. The narrative of the trip could be followed even while
the two were travelling last October, because the web-pages were being
updated with scanned photographs and stories sent directly from Siberia.
Later, further still images, videos, sound files, and texts were added and
can now be looked at on:
