PIPS is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Provflux, a weekend-long event dedicated to artistic and social investigations into urban reality and imagination.

Provflux is created to be an interdisciplinary gathering for all people interested in urban interventions, networking technology, on the ground issues and solutions, game play, and planning. This year's Provflux will be a small glimpse into the creative and social potential of new ideas and technologies that are becoming part of our urban reality.

Within this context, Provflux hopes to create a space for imaginative and innovative solutions to a sometimes homogenous and uninspiring urban landscape.

This third year of Provflux is proud to host a broad range of artists, mappers, thinkers, architects, and visionaries, all who will be presenting their visions of the city. The public is invited to participate in these artistic and social investigations into urban reality and imagination.
