Artistic Prosperity for the Digital Future!
Artengine is looking for applications from artists, creators, designers and cultural workers to join a year-long Digital Economies Lab (DEL) at Artengine.
The DEL explores the state of work, remuneration and prosperity in art and culture in the 21st century. We are looking for a broad range of cultural perspectives and creative practices to assemble at the lab. We need people with a passionate position on art and culture’s place in the digital revolution, who are open to new ideas, who are generators of new perspectives, who are technically literate and/or technically critical!
Together, we will explore this key question:
How can we make a viable and sustainable space for artists, creatives and culture in general, in the digital context of Canada and the world?
What will the DEL do?
Selected members will work collaboratively to develop a series of early-stage prototypes to be circulated around the web during and beyond the DEL. The lab will meet in Ottawa for three key collaborative sessions, as well as work remotely throughout the year, while prototypes and outputs are circulated in partnership with HOLO Magazine.
