Here’s one of our quick reminders for the weekend…. Now that the deadline has been extended (only until next Friday though) you may be willing to know that Open(Art), aka the joint project between New York’s Eyebeam center & Mozilla Foundation, is still accepting submissions…
Both non-profit organisations are collaborating together in this “Open(Art)” contest, which in essence is looking for new, fresh and exciting ideas that need some development and funding help.
“Open(Art) is a unique opportunity for artists and technologists to collaborate on new work that catalyzes creative participation on a global scale. Interested makers are invited to propose projects that push the boundaries of online or networked culture and address contemporary social challenges, while contributing to the community of practice around creative code”.
Three (3) projects will be selected from an open call for proposals. Mozilla and Eyebeam will support Open(Art) Fellows to produce, present and grow the projects over a six-month development process. Each of the three selected project teams will be awarded a $15,000 production budget and resources to develop their work, including desk space and access to design, research, and fabrication studios at Eyebeam’s New York location.
The contest is open to any non-student participant from anywhere (although acommocation and relocation for non-New Yorkers isn’t provided) and looks like perfect opportunity for artists & technologists (or simply, anyone with a great idea) to fusion art and open web. More info on how to apply & conditions, dates…etc this way ladies & gentlemen.
