IDENSITAT call for sport+art projects in Spain 2012

IDENSITAT is a quite exceptional art project/organization (based in Barcelona) that investigates ways to impact the public sphere through commissioning/supporting work (productions, publications, exhibitions...) that explore physical and social aspects of place and territory. In the ID*A line of activities for creative projects based on a particular theme, specific to the physical, social and temporal dimensions of a particular site IDENSITAT (together with Spanish Council for Sport) opens a second call in ID*SPORT series . This is one of the most interesting calls around for creatives interested in producing sport related projects. Their webpage lists some of the projects supported by last years call.

event #1 EGLSF bylaws work group meet @Roodkapje

First event at QueerSport.LAB - INSTITUTION was informal working meeting of EGLSF bylaws work group meet between Armelle, Davy and Zeljko (this is a second meeting after the one in Paris TIP tournament about 5-6 weeks ago).
It was an effort of about 90min to explain to ourselves different perspectives, positions and argumentation one can take when looking of membership structures of organizations in LGBTQ sport. Notes were made for production of a joint position paper to be presented to EGLSF members as an attempt of not only to be changing existing bylaws, but also inform and inspire members to look at this issue from multiple perspectives and with different arguments (not just one's own).
Position paper will include both text on what should be considered when discussing representation (multiple representation as well as non-represented) and graphic visualizations to map existing situation and understand support changes. We will provide you with updates on our work on-line... including the graphics through GoogleDocs.
