Let your id, ego and super ego loose! The city of Worcester is having a 50 minute session on the couch… kinda, sorta. In celebration of the Worcester Cultural Coalition’s 10 years of creative city-making and to mark the 100th anniversary of the visit by Sigmund Freud to Worcester (his only speaking engagement in the US), area artists are invited to help us “put Worcester on the couch.” This interactive public art project intends to allow people to take to the couch to express their visions and concerns about the City and region. For more information, visit their website or contact Erin I. Williams, Cultural Development Officer, at 508-799-1400 x265 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: 5:00pm, Friday, August 14, 2009

Deadline: November 15, 2009.
