[NICE] Network Meeting in Riga
August 25, 2000

[NICE] - Network Interface for Cultural Exchange
in the region of Baltic Sea and North-East Europe

The NICE meeting held during the ART+COOMUNICATION festival in Riga will focus on cultural policy issues related to new media, micro-cultures and cultural exchange in the region of Baltic Sea and North/East Europe.
The first meeting of new media culture initiatives from the Baltic Sea Region took place in November 1999, within the framework of TEMP - Temporary Media Lab project in Kiasma, Helsinki. The participants of TEMP established a network for new media culture [NICE].
The NICE meeting in Riga, is a follow-up to this event, and recognises the need for face-to-face meetings, and the need for dialogue between practitioners and policy-makers in the region
