[Nettime-nl] Media Art Platform newsletter nr 1.


[MEDIA ART PLATFORM - GENERAL NEWS]

Welcome to the Media Art Platform's first newsletter.
The Media Art Platform (MAP) is a website and social network for media art enthusiasts, with a strong focus on the Netherlands. MAP is an initiative of the Netherlands Media Art Institute (NIMk) and was developed with the kind support of the Mondriaan Foundation.

With MAP, we aim to provide a platform for the exchange of information about media art among enthusiasts and professionals. MAP offers the possibility to write weblogs, to ask questions on a forum, to create personal and organisation profiles and to add events to the Dutch media art calendar. Your input is welcome! Do get in touch with us if you would like to play an active role on MAP, either by posting your own activities, by being a forum host or by writing a weblog about your work and interests related to media art.
