Toolkit festival: 3-4-5 of May 2012
Following the success of the first Toolkit Festival in 2011, the organizing committee has decided to put out a Call for Submissions to make the selection of artists for the 2012 edition.
Toolkit Festival is a project conceived by Martin Romeo, who in a short time has garnered attention and success within the arts community on a national level, involving many institutions and professionals in the field of new media art. The festival will be held in Venice and hosted by AplusA | Slovenian Exhibition Centre and collateral spaces, May 3-4-5, 2012.
Toolkit Festival has been conceived as a national meeting for all the artists interested in the world of interactivity whose aim is to investigate and realize, through the use of technology, the topic of interactivity between the artist, the exhibition space and the public. Over the last year volunteers have been working to widen the offer of the festival. Indeed, in this edition there will be more events. Among those events there will be an exhibition of interactive installations that will take place in the AplusA spaces during the days of the festival and a day dedicated to perfomances and contemporary dance at the Ca’ Foscari University Auditorium in Campo Santa Margherita. In addition, on the last day of the festival the attention will be focused on Forte Marghera, where all the works created during the workshop will be presented, followed by a final night of audio-visual performances.
The deadline for submission is March 25th 2012.
