(French artist Robert FILLIOU proclaimed Jan.17.1963 (also his Birthday) to be Art's 1000000th Anniversary. This arbitrary and revendicative act projected a utopic desire for worldwide official proclamation of AA by political powers in the spirit of La Fte permanente and recognition of artist work and implication. For 34 years now, people and groups have gathered celebrating and promoting AA and activate for its political officialisation. Quebec City has decreted AA as others have, in Québec, Canada, Europe. We NOW invite you to contribute to this utopy.

All groups concerned with AA in the past (and others) are now contacted and encouraged to organise manifestations in their community and to inform Le Lieu of their programm ASAP.
We suggest you to promote this day your original way in your community and approach local politics with the demand for AA concrete/official proclamation. In QuŽbec, Le Lieu coordinates with collaboration of other artists run centers the following programm : we will be playing bowling (involving staff/members of 5 artists run org.) ; having supper ; live radio prog on 2 communautary stations ; (maybe on local tv) ; Internet CU-See Me connection and/or e-mail+fax+phone ; all ending up in a convivial party with local bands. * (Communicate us with your intention to organise activities on 17.01.97/We will include all info we receive on a global programm that we will forward to a wide network of groups and inviduals in beginning of January informing of what is happening worldwide on the day of the 17.01 and how to contact the various active locations.

Le Lieu will assume technical coordination for network communications on 17.01.97. People/Groups will be linked by phone/fax/Internet (e-mail + CU-See Me that allows live audio/video links). This « gathering » uses multiple means of rather low tech tools to allow reaching people/groups in their various situations. Your participation could be sending AA wishes for example that we and others on the network can communicate through our/their public activities and redistribute on the network. If you have access to a AV computer (supporting video memory), a modem, and regular access to Internet, you should be able to operate CU-See Me without great complications (see below). We will be interacting with (as confirmed yet) Vancouver, Toulouse, Paris, Belfast, Hull (England) and YOU? We appreciate you to confirm your intention to use CU-See Me so we know to « look » for you/list your participation/and try to connect with as little problems as possible. You could also send messages from your favorite CybercafŽ.
