"A refugge? A belly? A safe place
where we can hide when drowing from the rain, or being broken by the
cold, or taken away by the wind? We have a splendid past in front of
us? To the sailors with desire of wind, the memory is a starting
point." Eduardo Galeano
it aims to occupy a live place in the city of Belém, a week
previous to the World Social Forum, promoting artistic and multimedia
interventions in public spaces with guests coming from all over Brazil.
In the Amazon, especially conflictuous by a historical process of the
economy of extractivist basis, natural resources are being devastated
to the construction of a progress model, the artificial culture of
consume imposes itself over the autoctonous culture generating cultural
hibridisms that format the individual from a desensibilization, the
hunger exuberates: hunger of food, knowledge and solidarity.
In this hurricane of conflicts, needs and social problematics it is the
figure of women, forced to adopt comportamental depreciative patterns
in front of society, ending up, in much of the cases, fragilized by the
sexist and machist culture that refrain her of acting positively in its
professional and personal relations, generating a grave violation of
human rights that needs to be overcomed and prevented, we aspire that
mena and women can share the fellings about its necessities and
The deterioration of the familiar functions follows the transforming of
the finantial capital, whose strategy of revitalization is based on
sale, on commerce and in the immediate substitution of goods. This
principle extends itself to the human race, in a way that substituting
someone at a work post, afetivity and interpersonal relations is a

It is needed to superseed the myths and reformulate the interpersonal
relation, activate the dialogue between men and women by the artistuc
practice, the poetics of the relations, ocuppy the mediatic space, to
re-construct these values.
In this fashion, the event aims to go beyond the discussion of gender,
also reflecting about the formation of families and the histories that
come out of the co-llective families, co-laborative, co-munal,
co-operative, etc, because mediatic processes generate a convergence
between cultural/social facts in a diversity that is fast and
inquantifiable between collective movements, comunitary and
colaborative that can or nor constitute or destruct families.
By creating a conviviality space between the participants we want
thinking women creating spaces of reflection, men cooking and children
descovering the spaces of the city (games, activities, objects). Divers
creations, expositions and debates occupy the spaces during the day, to
converge at night on the cineclub.
By comprehending the imaginary of local and global identities about the
feminine universe, thinking and abstract, and the masculine of
productiona and execution, we question gender and reknowledge not
separating the subject from the object: who forms the minds in
OBJECTIVES: historical appropriation, local narratives, colective
imaginaries, cultural discussion of work, of family and tecnology.
To discuss and deepen these questions, lets commemorate
Submidialogia#4, conference to be hel in Belém, state of
Pará, Brazil. It is for this encounter that we invite you,
opening up a call for presentation of *rituals of imaginary
celebration* and *permanent expositions of experiences* related to the
themes. If it exists a group, a being, a coherent performance or
expression of creative discordance in relation to the festival, these
can be included at the programme by this call.
"I miss a country that still doesn't exist on the map"
A proposal of integration by debates and sub>midiatic practices.
Submidialogy is a critic multidisciplinar project of art, media and
participatory technologies, from which all agents involved - local
community, theorics, technicians, artists, activists and the public
space - all take part.
The project have been provoking experimental actions that inovate in
the field of digital media and new technologies because it truly
emerges from colaborative open processes and in constant construction.
In this fashion are questioned social, cultural e political
configurations, besides the imagined use abiut the existence of
technical and aesthetic objects.
By fomenting the dialog between theoryu and practice having as the
starting point the conviviality along the day-by-day of the communities
and people, at public spaces, we make art, science and gastronomy.
Ideas are exchanged, experiences and knowledge, as participants
collectively contrict the moments of the festival.
Themes and formats are in permanent construction, but croos areas sich
as culture, comunication, resistance, re-signification, media,
tecnologia, arts and tactics.
By the realization of different forms of workshops and interactions
(debates, espactacles, exibitions, live transmissions, philosofic
conviviality, electric shocks and day-by-day interventions), from
collecting oral histories and creating visibility mechanisms inside and
outside communities, the project aims to equip its participants with
resources so that they can talk about its especulations, advanced
studies, practices and that reflect, by the creative experience, a
little bit about this identity disturbed by the velocity of an
In Belém, a week before the World Social Forum, Submidialogy
aims to act alongside the hosting event co[MIDIA], exibiting a series
of artistic works at public spaces to promote the discussion of a ample
debate about the current world (finaltial, alimentary, cultural..)
crisis and its roots in the crisis of values of the modern family.
We consider essentil that this
discussion is deppened in a unlimited fashion.
