Team Colors is proud to announce that the Whirlwinds project — the journal and events series — is entering a new phase as it begins to come to a close. 

 

On May 25th, 2008 Team Colors Collective launched an ambitious one-off online journal entitled In the Middle of a Whirlwind: 2008 Convention Protests, Movement and Movements (Whirlwinds); coordinate by the collective and published by The Journal of Aesthetics and Protest Press. (…) 

 

 

WHIRLWINDS INTRODUCTION & MAP

 

Team Colors has written an short introduction to the journal and provided a map of the contributions titled “Will You Join Us in the Middle of a Whirlwind?: Movement, Movements & Mapping Our Current Cycle of Struggle”, this is available here

  

 

MAKE A DONATION TO THE PROJECT

 

Although Whirlwinds is a free online publication there have been considerable expenses in launching this one-off online journal.  We are still fundraising toward our goal of $3,000.00 to cover project expenses, every dollar donated toward our $1,500.00 matching fund will be ‘matched’, so we ask those who haven’t and are able to please consider making a contribution.

 

Make a contribution to Whirlwinds today!  Those contributing $20 or more will receive a copy of the “Will you join us in the middle of a whirlwind” color poster, designed by Just Seeds & printed by Eberhardt Press.  Please visit our donation page to make secure online donations and to find out more about the costs incurred in the production of the journal.  Thank you for considering making a contribution to this project!

Friends,

Hello from Team Colors HQ!

We are emailing you all today since the Whirlwinds project — the journal and events series — is entering a new phase as it begins to come to a close. (Note: the journal website will remain available.)

COMING TO A CLOSE
Currently we are uploading the final two contributions to the project, holding a few additional events in the Northwest, documenting ‘Of Friends & Whirlwinds’ events (video, text, Power Point presentations), compiling action reports and analysis from the Convention Protests, and reviewing the project as a whole. Additionally, a final announcement for these new materials and this phase of the project will go out shortly.

SURVEY OF READERS & PARTICIPANTS
As participants in the Whirlwinds project, editors, readers, event attendees, supporters, and donors we at Team Colors are very much interested in your thoughts and opinions on this undertaking.

You will find a copy of our “Survey of Readers & Participants” here, and we respectfully request that you fill it out and return it to us by the 30th of October so it can include the findings in a report on the project which will appear on our website and in the German publication Arranca!.

FUTURE WHIRLWINDS & TEAM COLORS MATERIALS
All future Whirlwinds material, including videos and text from ‘Of Friends & Whirlwinds’ events, protest analysis, Whirlwinds report and copies of the survey responses, announcements on possible print versions of the project — in addition to future Team Colors projects — can be found at www.warmachines.info.
