Call for contributions - May Day 2007 Documentary
My name is Mark Cooley. I am an artist, media
producer and professor of art and visual technology at
George Mason University, USA. I've recently begun a
series of internet documentary and journalism programs
entitled Calling America. The series covers various
progressive events, issues and movements by setting up
collective and participatory journalism platforms
using new communications technologies. Please see the

Call for Contributions
Calling America: Walk Out - May Day '07

Calling America is currently looking for contributors
for an upcoming program on May 1. We wish to collect
the voices of individuals who are participating in May
Day strikes, walkouts, boycotts and similar actions to
record their reasons for doing so and to act as
reporters on May Day events. Calling America
contributors will be delivering spoken word
testimonies, stories and reports on May 1 via
telephone from diverse locations. Contributions will
form the basis of a collective audio blog which will
develop live throughout the day on May 1 and
afterwhich permanently archived on the Calling America
web site.
