On the eve of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Twin Towers Go Global is issuing an international open call for responses to the question "Where would you rebuild the Twin Towers? Why?" In collecting and archiving voices from across the globe, TTGG hopes to create a memorial expressive of the Towers' significance to a wide array of individuals and cultures, as well as their continuing unifying power.
Responses can take the form of image, text, or a mixture of both (you can even handwrite your response and take a picture of it!) Images should come in jpeg or pdf format, or type text directly into an email. Submissions will be accepted beginning July 30 and ending August 28, 2011. All responses will be posted on an ongoing basis at the following link: http://www.twintowersgoglobal.org/wtc/open-call/ . Submissions will be reviewed by a jury of artists, architects, scholars, and 9/11 experts, which will choose ten submissions to be highlighted on the Twin Towers Go Global website after August 28. All participants will be notified by email when finalists have been posted.
