Antipode Foundation seeks nomination to participate in International Workshop Awards that are intended to support radical geographers holding events (including conferences, workshops, seminar series, summer schools and action research meetings) that further radical analyses of geographical issues and engender the development of a new and better society. The Foundation encourages initiatives that are adventurous, that explore the boundaries of established academic practice, and that trespass and disrupt disciplinary borders. They seek work that is innovative and original. They aim to fund and support activities that have implications for praxis, to better understand contemporary political concerns and to develop alternatives.
