5th Inter-format Symposium on time (and inter-formativity) 22–25 August 2015
Nida Art Colony, Lithuania
Co-curated by Dr. Vytautas Michelkevičius (LT) and Andrew Gryf Paterson (SCO/FI/FR)
Dinner Discussions, Toasts, Planning, Parties.
This year marks the fifth iteration for the international symposium and aims to reflect on its own course, with the focus on artistic and academic notions of time and inter-formativity itself. The participatory nature of the symposium - between a conference and an art festival - brings together 40 professionals (artists, curators, scientists, researchers, time-managers) for three days and nights to an intensive sharing and working environment. After being tired of too short coffee breaks and too long presentations, we will attempt to re-order extended and condensed time slots, and experiment with formats of presenting and sharing art and knowledge.
The 5th edition of the Inter-format symposium has two goals: To reflect upon and rethink the symposium as an experiential and discursive space where knowledge sharing happens in very different formats, beyond our usual understanding what is a lecture (seminar, presentation, discussion, etc.) and performance (stand-up, participatory event, jam session, etc.); To consider the role of time as a medium for sharing experiences and knowledge, including it’s out/on-goingness and limitations.

Breakfast prepared by Error (US/EE/FI) - 09.00am
Error (US/EE/FI): "Error Time Management: How Daily Event Can Be Sublime, Such as Breakfast #ApplePorridge
With the intention of filling artist’s bellies with a hearty meal; #ApplePorridge is a ritualized breakfast in the sunshine that includes a song, coffee, thematic food preparation and “Hobobo Mimosas” TM. Everyone is invited although all will not attend; during symposium many people chose to sleep in and the early risers find #ApplePorridge an intimate situation to meet and share the ambiance of the moment. This coded offering of simple food is a forum for a free flow and exchange of ideas and information.
#ApplePorridge is about is how to carve out time, finding disused or underused time, materials and space to create a focal point for social interaction.
Error works in collective to create objects and installations from available resources. Since 2009 Error has used rest, spa, meals, games and whatnot as the critical media of art production. At the fifth NAC international Inter-format Symposium Error is represented by one of the founding Errorists; Ernest Truely.
