The participating cities are Austin (United States), Braga (Portugal), Calí (Colombia), Changsha (China), Guadalajara (México), Karlsruhe (Germany), Kosice (Slovakia), Sapporo (Japan) and York (United Kingdom).
Works will be presented online between 24-29 November.

online collaboration and to realise work that can be distributed and consumed
