EMS has decided that 2011 is "Hardware year", come to our DIY get-together and be inspired!

Det utmanande berättandet (provocative story-telling) 13/3 at 13:30-15:00 at Victoria

How can story-telling be provocative? Through story-telling itself, and not the actual story.
Stockholms Dramatiska Högskola's radio students will be playing a programme which isn't what you think it is. Time has been shifted, broken and remodelled. Jenny Sunesson, a sound artist living in England and Sweden will be playing exerpts from her production and talking to professor Bengt Bok about provocative story-telling.

Thanks to everyone who participated and made out first DIY meeting last night a success. Hope to see you next time!
