Global Calendar Project

Already since 2008 a group of people is busy working on a
"Global Contact Improvisation Calendar" with the vision:
"We envision a self-developed, community-owned tool that can be shared with any local CI page, event page, or teacher page just by linking to it...."
Hopefully it will go online (tese phase) end of 2015... have a look at that website.

They will will need a global "fill in support team". Means in this starting time of this calendar we need supporters for circa 3 months in every country that help us fill in CI event data from other sources (other web calendars and/or yahougroups or facebook groups).
Ask Sebas van Wetten, if you want to help with that for the dutch CI-scene.
