A groundbreaking residency that enables experimentation and creation in innovative writing practices. In(ter)ventions welcomes interventions in writing as an art form, where the medium itself (language) is the site of investigation. The means of production that might frame such interventions (such as audio, electronic literature, interactivity, vizpo, video, performance, collaboration, and so on) are secondary to and/or juxtaposed with the compositional.
The In(ter)ventions program is designed for projects that challenge received literary conventions and are driven by adventure and innovation in language, rather than the means of production such as technology and hardware. Forms of production and dissemination involving technology will be considered and supported in the development of the project during the residency, where these are essential to the intervention.
