From June 21 to June 29, 2014 Public Media Institute presents:
Version Festival 14: The Placemakers

Website Url: versionfest.org

DOWNLOAD Version 14 Full Program

DOWNLOAD Version 14 Placemakers Summit Schedule

For the past 12 years Version Festival has introduced projects that tackle local social and urban issues. The festival highlights projects and people that engage the public interest and promote the cultural use of public space.

This year Version Festival will share projects by people who are shaping the physical environment and social character of the city through art and cultural reinvigoration.  From June 21-29, 2014 the festival will bring together a diverse group of creative workers, gardeners, pop up urbanists, artists and activists to celebrate, inspire and be inspired by the praxis of transforming our cities' neighborhoods. We will examine how creative place-making and tactical urbanism animates public and private spaces, rejuvenates structures and streetscapes, and improves business viability, public safety and builds a better urban society.

Version Festival 14: The Placemakers will be a journey through mini markets, festivals, artist warehouses, exhibition platforms, public art projects, bar-b-qs, tours and communal activities that  highlight the best practices of a range of projects seeking to radically change the fabric of our cities. The festival will investigate an array of rejuvenated spaces as well as take part in creating temporary decentralized hubs of creative activities. Our goal is to help animate under utilized spaces, spark cultural and economic development and promote co-prosperity for all.

The festival is co-produced by Public Media Institute (PMI) and dozens of our neighbors, community groups, friends, and business owners here in Chicago. PMI is a non-profit 501(c) 3, community based, arts & culture organization located in Chicago, Illinois. Our mission is to create and incubate innovative arts programming and cultural infrastructures to transform people - socially and intellectually – through the production of festivals, art spaces, events, exhibitions, community projects, artifacts and media. Public Media Institute is committed to the region's cultural ecology and is evident through our series of programs, spaces and projects.

Brian Mier Slow Ride

Lumpen Publishing presents:

Slow Ride - By Brian Mier -
ISBN: 978-0-9905023-0-2

[ Purchase as a Kindle E-Book ]

We are pleased to announce the occassion of printing our first Lumpen novel. It is by Brian Mier, a long time contibutor and Editor of Lumpen magazine.

Brian Mier grew up on the North Side of Chicago and has lived in Brazil since 1999.  He is currently a policy analyst at the Centro de Direitos Economicos e Sociais. From 2007 to 2012 he was a member of the national directorate of the Brazilian National Urban Reform Forum (FNRU). He has worked with the Landless Peasants Movement (MST) and was a two time speaker at the World Social Forum. Brian has written extensively on Brazilian news and culture for the underground press over the years. His writing has appeared in Lumpen and Vice, and elsewhere.


About SlowRide

A double-trailer rig winds its way slowly through the Brazilian countryside.  Zeca, an old-fashioned, macho truck driver decides to break up with his wife. As he drives along, his niece ridicules his sexist ways. Slow Ride is an anti-adventure travel story created through mixing audio transcriptions of a real truck ride with fictional and expository passages. Inspired by Sam Miller's "Delhi: Adventures in a Megacity", it finds the humor in mundane events and offers a window into Brazil, a country struggling to reconcile the old with the new.
