From the Version>10 [ website] :

For eleven days and nights, we will explore the best practices and boldest failures in interventionist, participatory, collective social, political, and cultural practices. This year's theme is presented in order to bring together groups and individuals seeking additional methods for the practice of art, education and social activism well into the next decade. We want to use this opening during the current economic and political crisis to amplify our shared ideals, values and strategies.
