Free State Digital Creative Festival - Call for artist applications
// An Augmented Reality digital art project of INFINI3, funded by the National Arts Council of SA //
Wassup fam. I hope you are all well, and enjoying the new year. 1 month has gone by, and a lot has been happening as usual, but we'll be keeping you up to date with everything soon. For now, we got a huge project that's no longer in the pipelines, and we couldn't wait any longer to inform you about it.
Bloemfontein will be hosting the Free State Digital Creative Festival in March, and we are looking for 10 visual artists, 10 digital artists and 10 poets who are currently based in the Free State province. This festival is basically an Augmented Reality digital art project of INFINI3, funded by the National Arts Council of South Africa, which will showcase collaborative work by the selected artists. For those familiar with Giving Poetry Wings, just thinking of it as Giving Poetry Wings on a bigger scale. It will kick off with a 3-day hackathon with 30 selected artists from Tuesday 24th to Thursday 26th of March followed by the opening of the Augmented Reality (AR) Digital Art Expo on the 27th of March which will run the whole day on the 28th. The aim of this project is to create a space and opportunity for Free State artists to have their work developed into AR artworks and collaborate in creating these artworks whilst promoting social cohesion and inclusion. Please ensure that you will be available for the hackathon and expo dates before applying:
