Below is a description of the event from the organisers:
About the theme of the artists camp: needs assessment
Terror, the reality is also an illusion causing fear of unknown. There are many players of the terror game in a single act of terror therefore its blame can be put on anyone depending on what suits at that particular moment. The phenomenon needs to be narrowed to debatable topics and all activities of the event are tied to standard definitions and global outlook. The theme thus elaborated would have healthy participation and result oriented approach.
