Dialogue is tirelessly presented as ‘the’ solution to the problems of ‘our’ times – in art, war, love, democracy and even in the workplace. In fact, dialogue has been central to the ethos of Memefest since its inception back in 2002. But what if dialogue is not working?

RADICAL INTIMACIES: DIALOGUE IN OUR TIMES is the theme of this year’s Memefest. We’re trying to ask a dfficult question in order to honestly explore all the complicated failures and the hopeful potentialities that feed our faith in dialogue – politically, creatively, laboriously and intimately.

Respond to this proposition in the Memefest 2014 Friendly Competition.

Deadline for your submissions is September 20th. Participation is free of charge and there is no age limit or any other restriction.

We will post more soon. For now it is your turn.

I really like the dialogue theme this year. Especially because I am really interested in the creative dialogue theme at the moment!

I watched a thought-provoking discussion yesterday about Australian culture dialogue, on the TV on ABC, Big Ideas program. From wordstorm 2014 May 29 - June 1 top end writers' festival. But I am not sure where to view it again...

Called 'Divide and Conquer' "Annette Shun Wah speaks with Alexis Wright, Dr. Philip McLaren, Christos Tsiolkas, and Teresa Crea to discuss why there has not been an open dialogue between non-Anglo migrants and Indigenous Australians. Has this been instrumental in maintaining a ghetto mentality and ensuring colonial culture prevails?" http://wordstorm.org.au/category/program/panel-sessions/

Hey, welcome to the official Memefest blog!

Since 2003 we have been using a blog platform as tactical media to reflect, critique, comment and inform around the broad field of communication. Now in 2010 with our newly conceived on-line platform we hope that through time this space will evolve in a collaborative blog media with a wider group of contributors to the global discourse around social responsibility of media and communication. Stuff that you can find here is either original or carefully and originally edited from other sources.  There is a good chance that you will find things that will be of good use for you too if you follow us more regularly.

Of course we look at Memeblog as a dialogic platform. Your comments are encouraged and mostly welcome.

If you feel like collaborating in this: drop us a line: memefest at memefest dot org.
