ICE Immersion Series: ICE Immersion Series are collaborative programs on which participants will develop creative work together with the assigned Series Directors. Directors are invited based on outstanding achievement in the arts, literature or cultural practice. If participants agree, the work produced could be submitted for distribution or publication. Terms and conditions for distribution will be defined by the incumbents.
One month prior to the immersion sessions, participants will receive electronic materials needed to be reviewed for the sessions. These materials are meant for the use of the participants only. Participants will be encouraged to discuss these materials with other participants and Immersion Sessions Directors via email and a blog open for this purpose.
