"Territorial Play aims to illustrate, annotate and animate discourse around the current trend towards a 'mobilised city'. With the emergence of location aware mobile devices and near ubiquitous access to electronic networks in urban and rural areas, a new city is emerging beneath our feet.
This dynamic 'hybrid-city' is a city in flux, where ideas of authorship and ownership are left at the door. It is information-rich and increasingly populated by not just local inhabitants but visitors from other communities. What are the cultural implications of this emergent public domain and what possibilities do the architecture and protocol of networked space present to affect change in real space?
We are inviting artists, performers, visualists, filmmakers, designers, game-players, writers and others to stake claims, occupy space, command territory, re-imagine the public domain, uncover hidden spaces and return to our day jobs the next day leaving no trace.
The event will take place over one day, using Nottingham's Digital Media Centre Broadway as the base of operations however we welcome submissions that engage with the public and spaces in and around the city."

"Nottingham Contemporary took three years to build, but its conception dates back to the early 90s, when a new building for contemporary art was originally proposed by Nottingham Trent University. Nottingham City Council, the building’s developers, took the idea forward, with the support of Arts Council England East Midlands. A Board was appointed in 2006 led by its current Chair Gary Smerdon-White. Funding for the building came from Arts Council England, Nottingham City Council, emda, the European Regional Development Fund, Greater Nottingham Partnership and a significant private donation."
