>Electronic Music Foundation (EMF) and Leonardo, both not-for-profit
>organizations that serve music and art in today's world, have launched a
>collaboration to develop The EMF / Leonardo Guide to the World, which
>includes The World Wide Calendar, special features, a guide to internet
>resources, an Internet Directory, and notices from sponsors.
>
>The World Wide Calendar is a web-based calendar / database and monthly
>email update (this is the first issue). Our goal is to make it possible for
>anyone in the world to find out what's happening anywhere in the world at
>the cutting edge of electronic music, new music, media art, and related
>artforms ... without investing hours in navigating different websites,
>sorting email messages, or scouring lists and more lists.
>
>In fact, we've been maintaining a worldwide calendar on our website for the
>past few years. But just this week we've crossed a new starting line and
>The World Wide Calendar is now reborn the better to list and promote
>events, individual artists, organizations, and cutting edge companies. And
>we're trying to do it in a way that allows you to access information easily
>and quickly.

>Here is a selective sampling from May listings.

>Whatever one might think of NATO bombing, the outbound flow of Kosovar
>refugees and their tales of horror during the past several weeks has
>certainly led many people to reflect on violence and destruction in our
>culture. All the more gratifying to find a constructive and creative voice
>in Belgrade, and the more so in that our efforts are valued.
