Call for participants/submissions


Extreme Crafts is an international exhibition project held in Vilnius. We
are looking for contributions for a part of the show called the Rogues
Gallery. We're looking for the weird and the wonderful, the inventive, the
amusing, the twisted, the political, the subversive and whatever is being
made at the fringes of the fringes. The project opens in May 2007.

To contribute or for more information get in touch by email:

each one with its own distinct meaning.
