GENESIS

Africa Art Box is the continuation of an approach initiated by TRIAS CULTURE since 2008 in Senegal to promote digital creation and integration of new media in the professional career of cultural actors in Senegal and Africa.

Several workshops offered to artists allowed to experiment with media and various technologies: light sensors, bending, rangefinder, ultrasound, etc., as well as real-time capture of data, video camera in different formats (HD, camera Video surveillance, mobile phone).

Through this research and experimentation, new spaces for digital creation and collaborative and interdisciplinary interaction have been made possible. To capitalize on its achievements TRIAS CULTURE considers it necessary to create a space of convergence around a perennial event and to assist artists in the construction of an artistic career more in consonance with their era.

The call is open until September 30 2017 at 11:59 PM (GMT).
