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.

Read more about the festival’s outlines here, or go directly to the category that interests you the most and check them out here: Visual Communication practice, Critical Writing and the participatory art/communication category 'Beyond...'!

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/

Open blog is a collective blog agregator.  Posts that can be read and viewed here have been originally posted by members of the Memefest community.

While members of the community  are able to check blog posts from the circle of their comrades within the on-line profile, this is the place where you are able to check on everything that has been bloged by anyone on this platform. The toppics and styles are diverse as this community consists of people from very different cultural, social backgrounds and also very different fields of expertice. Together- and through time- we hope – this gives us a good picture of radical communication culture.
