iHub and Goethe Institut, in a joint effort, will fund creatives who use technology in their works, be it in the conceptual/creative or presentation processes.
The programme will kick start in the coming months and funds will cover the productions that recipients are expected to create and exhibit in a given period. All works should fall under the category of digital art as defined by the organisers.
To participate, write a proposal of art works themed on ‘art and technology’. The proposal should deal with the topic “Kenya’s Future” and in areas like animation, music visualisation, net poetry, interactive installations, gaming, and others.
“The proposal should describe and/or visually conceptualize (storyboards, diagrams or other visual modelling) your project idea as well as include what tools, materials, processes, display and budget costs might be involved. Funding shall be based on the strength of the proposal as well as the integrity of the budget,” the partners said.
Interested participants are invited to attend a gathering that will commence March 21, from 1pm-4pm at iHub (4th floor, Bishop Magua building opposite Uchumi Ngong Hyper, along Ngong Road). It will be an avenue for engineers, artists and techies to interact.
The event will mark the official launch for the call of applications.
