ArtGrid 24 hour observance event:
World AIDS Day / A Day Without Art (Video)
December 1, 2006
Established by the World Health Organization in 1988, World AIDS Day
serves to focus global attention on the devastating impact of the
HIV/AIDS epidemic. Observance of this day provides an opportunity for
governments, national AIDS programs, arts organizations, churches,
community groups and individuals to demonstrate the importance of the
fight against HIV/AIDS.
With an estimated 39.4 million people worldwide living with HIV at the
end of 2004, and more than 20 million people having died of AIDS since
1981, December 1st serves to remind everyone that action makes a
difference in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
To remind the public that AIDS can touch everyone and to inspire
positive action, we invite all Access Grid sites, when systems are not
in use and you have parked your node in a venue, to send black video or
turn off your cameras and send blue video. We hope that this will
represent the losses to the arts, sciences and technology communities as
a result of HIV/AIDS.
If you would like, you can park your AG nodes at the ArtGrid lobby:
AGtk-2.4 - https://agvs.chpc.utah.edu:8000/Venues/default
AGtk-3.x - https://artgridvs.chpc.utah.edu:8000/Venues/default
For more information please contact me. Thank you all for your
participation and observance of this day.
