PROVFLUX 2005 :: MAY 27-29

The Providence Initiative for Psychogeographic Studies (PIPS) is pleased to announce its second annual Provflux, a weekend-long event dedicated to artistic and social investigations in psychogeography. Part festival and part conference, it brings together visual, performance, and new media artists, along with writers, urban adventurers and the general public. Events will take place throughout Providence to explore the physical and psychological landscape of the city.

This year, we are anticipating the participation of over 200 artists from 9 countries, with projects that range from GPS-based mapping experiments to roundtable discussions, banquet dinners to guided walking tours, and public performance to a full gallery show. Please join us and help change the urban shape of Providence.
