Wake up UNIMA China
Today I received an email, via UNIMA Australia, with the first information about the UNIMA 2012 Congress and Festival to take place in Chengdu, China from 28 May to 4 June 2012. On searching the web for an official UNIMA China Congress website, I discovered that there actually isn't one! The only UNIMA China website is outdated and last updated in 2002.
The last time I discussed Chengdu 2012 Congress was a month after the 2008 UNIMA Congress in Perth, when the region was hit by a terrible earthquake in Sichuan province, (see here), which left the fate of the next UNIMA Congress to anyone's guess. Well, it looks like the region was quickly rebuilt and the Congress & Festival will be going ahead and now we wait in anticipation to view all their details on the website. In the interim, you can download the PDF festival application forms for Chengdu from the UNIMA-USA website here.
(But please note that the closing date for applications is the end of November 2010, which doesn't give much time to those interested in participating!)
