Call for Participants: The slightest movement, Fierce & Quarantine
Quarantine, in partnership with Fierce, are hosting a project entitled The Slightest Movement, bringing together groups of strangers to create a temporary community which openly debates difference, exploring tolerance and ‘otherness’.
The task is repeated every day for a week. Each day the event is re-invented according to what happened the day before. A small group grows into a large one, gathering more and more strangers into a temporary – perhaps uneasy – community.
The slightest movement will take place 20-25 September in West Bromwich, and are inviting a core group of 15 people, both artists and non-artists, irrespective of background and experience to join this project. If you fancy getting involved, apply using the application via their website www.qtine.com by 3 September.
