Online Arts Festival 3.0 | EMYAN
For its third edition, the Online Arts Festival of the Euro-Med Young Artists Network (EMYAN) comes with a new direction; new in its concept, nature, duration and scope, showcasing the innovation and the creativity of the young artists of the Euro-Med region.
Since its establishment, EMYAN Online Arts Festival advocates web 2.0 models of producing and sharing artistic creativity. By showcasing the richness of artistic practices, it tries to strengthen cultural exchanges in the Euro-Med region.
The activities of the third edition of the online arts festival will run, for the first time, throughout the year, starting on 1 April 2011 and ending on 31 December 2011. Not only having a virtual presence, for the first time, the festival will also have a physical existence taking place, as a festival with a mobile nature, around the Euro-Med region.
A special feature section will be based on the concept of ‘fluxus’, which aims at stimulating the uses of new tools and new materials that foresee the challenge of creating art within a multidisciplinary context. Entries addressing the festival’s special feature should not only inspire the creators’ vision and ideas, but also reflect the tools and materials used to produce the artworks as well as artistic collaborations.
This year EMYAN will launch EXPO, an initiative to feature the creative and innovative work of organizations, individuals and groups that utilize new media tools to promote artistic and cultural activities via social media in the Euro-Med region (i.e. computer and mobile applications, cultural and artistic blogs, online exchange communities, etc.) beside hosting debates and discussions on the current cultural and artistic trends, inviting experts and intellectuals to present their ideas, views and opinions.
Online Arts Festival 3.0 accepts artistic entries from young artists (up to 30 years old) from Europe, the Mediterranean and the entire Arab world produced after 1 January 2009, in all fields of arts that can be published on the web.
Artistic entries can be submitted online by 15 March 2011.
