Have something to declare? Have a viewpoint to clear up once and for all? Have a rant rumbling inside?
A manifesto is a published verbal declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government. A manifesto usually accepts a previously published opinion or public consensus and/or promotes a new idea with prescriptive notions for carrying out changes the author believes should be made. It often is political or artistic in nature, but may present an individual’s life stance. Manifestos relating to religious belief are generally referred to as creeds.
(F)NOR collective is seeking manifestos for a live reading. Manifestos will be accepted anonymously, then to be cut apart, re-worked and re-imagined into new collective manifestos.
Submit your manifestos to email@example.com. More on F(NOR) at their tumblr.
