passing on this beautiful open call for a new art & ecology residency to the fediverse lios.io/ -- happening this summer in Bledow Desert, Poland

LIOS labs art & ecology residencies are programmes designed to nourish the inner and outer ecosystem. The residencies are spaces for knowledge ex-change and cultivation of regenerative body-mind practices.

This open call is especially directed to self-organized makers, artists, scientists, agents and groups of all kinds that feel the urgency of reimagining our world. We are looking for people willing to take the risk of living in the desert and working with elements as their guides in designing structures that inspire ecological living. We encourage initiatives that take in consideration local outreach, in forms of workshops and other social interventions.

The cost of 10 days residency is 185 euro. This fee includes accommodation and vegan & local food, insurance. Its a self-organized non-profit group.

Hi everyone - my name is Bhavik, and I'm an artist, designer and developer.

I'm interested in the future of social software, particularly how social spaces online can be calm, intimate, decentralized and open. Some of my work can be found at my website: bhaviksingh.com

I'm excited to be here, learn from everyone, and share as well :)

"Understanding Comics" should be recommended reading in high school art class tbh. It certainly taught me more about art in general than some of my teachers.

rewatched Porco Rosso, enjoyed it even more than the first time - it's quite subtle movie, even by Miyazaki's standards. i feel like rewatching the rest of Ghibli catalog this year and see how my tastes/values changed over the years
