Isea 2018 in South Africa
June 23-30, 2018. Durban More info
ISEA2018, the 24th International Symposium on Electronic Art, is the first ISEA to be held in the African sub-continent.
Hosted in the coastal city of Durban, South Africa, this event will be the 2018 and 5th iteration of the Durban Digital Festival in a strategy to build a local legacy. Bringing new audiences, academics and practitioners together with the ISEA community, the ISEA2018 theme, INTERSECTIONS, positions creative technological innovation as an activist engagement into public space and public practice with underlying critical questions of ownership, impositon and development. Creative collaboration between artists, artisans, designers, technologists, entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists and inventors will take place in a context where survival is the most basic instigator for solutions. In such a scenario, technological developments should follow and support these solutions.
This symposium and festival will focus on accessible and alternative platforms that encourage partnerships across sectors and regions, highlighting the strength of industry, institutions and government to think about how we can improve our environments and find locally relevant approaches for everyday challenges.
ISEA2018's strategy is to shape the program through a call for expressions
of interest for partnership-projects, symposium presentations, artistic interventions
and collaborative work sessions
