Digital & Media Arts: Call-out for proposals
We're looking towards a digital/media arts focus for the 2020 Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival.
We want the 1200 children & young people from 58 primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and community dance groups to engage creatively with artists and companies to evolve their understanding of digital & media arts and their potential relationship with dance.
We've got a huge digital media presence at our host venue. For two weekends the University of York campus comes alive with campus digital displays, foyer screens and 3 high definition projection screens as a backdrop to the stage. Great canvases for work.
Early days... and subject to successful applications for funding/sponsorship. But we want to start a conversation.
We'd like to work with artists across 4 areas:
1. Co-creation (with children and young people) of combined media arts/dance performance
2. Co-creation (with children and young people) of dance film/animation or similar
3. Digital Performance/installation on Festival weekends
4. Participatory workshops on Festival weekends
Fancy putting forward a proposal for one/some of these strands of work? Fill in the form below.
