Welcome to the Sideways festival

The backbone of the Sideways festival is a 4 week expedition through Belgium, from West to East, between August 17th and September 17th 2012. During the 5 festival weekends, the mobile laboratory takes a halt at 5 festival locations: Menen (19.8), Herzele (25-26.8), Brussels (1-2.9), Turnhout (8-9.9) and Zutendaal (15-16.9). Here, the different artistic trails are entwined into a knot of activity. These 5 festival locations host the actual festival programme: a series of performances, talks & walks, live art, site-specific interventions and walkshops!

These are just a few of more than 30 artistic projects to experience at the Sideways festival, an interdisciplinary art festival 'in the open' and 'on the go'. An initiative interconnecting ecology and culture.

Sideways sets out to explore a series of sidetracks. Fairly removed from Belgium's metropolitan arts centres and academic strongholds, it opens an artistic research on the cultural meanings of being on the road. Not as a driver or passenger, but on foot. Sideways takes as a starting point what in Belgium has become called 'slow ways' or 'slow paths': a meshwork of footpaths, alleys, tracks, backroads and 'desire lines' to be discovered by artists and audiences in the margin of the ubiquitous car infrastructure.

Far more than a connection to move from point A to point B, a trail is tantamount to a movement, an act of crossing, the performance of the passage. Sideways postulates no destinations; only variations of stillness and movement. Art on site, but occurring along lines (of movement) rather than situated at specific locations. Step by step, the expedition unfolds: passing by, with detours, fortuitously, pretty much sideways.

Sideways | 17 August - 17 September: 33 projects in open space, over 30 partners, a journey of 334 kilometers, 16 walking days, 5 festival weekends, 2 symposia and 1 multimedia donkey!

Information

What's it for

The 960 Grid System is a CSS framework that allows designers to quickly produce complex layouts. This template is for Joomla! 1.5, it includes the 960 Grid System and the basics of a normal Joomla! template. You can use this template to create your own Joomla! templates using the 960 Grid System.

How it works

The 960 Grid System uses containers consisting of either 12 or 16 columns. In the 12 column containers, columns are a total of 80 pixels wide, this consists of 60px of content area and 10 pixels either side of margin area. The 16 column containers, columns are 60 pixels wide, this consists of 40 pixels of content area and 10 pixels either side of margin. Within the containers we can define <div> elements that span one or more columns. For example, this content exists inside a 12 column container and spans a total of 7 columns.
