Athens’ 14th Digital Arts Festival is set to take place in May. Since 2005, the ADAF (previously AVAF, Athens Video Art Festival) has provided a platform for showcasing various forms of digital art, such as video art and installations, exploring the intersection between art and science. Through the years, it has presented works of web art, digital imagery, animation, interactive installations, as well as hosted workshops and other events, becoming in the process a dependable global gathering that attracts both international and local artists and audiences.
This year, the event is titled “Singularity Now – Tales from the Event Horizon”, a broad theme exploring the future of art and technology. The topic links many sciences; among the issues to be explored are brain upload and immortality, and the danger of artificial intelligence. The festival is to be held at the Athens Concert Hall (Megaron Mousikis).
Right now, the ADAF are looking for volunteers to be part of this exciting project. Volunteers will assist with tasks such giving tours to the visitors, setting up, and workshop support.
In its call the ADAF writes:
Volunteers are a vital part of Athens Digital Arts Festival. Every year, plenty of creative people join the Festival’s team in order to develop their abilities and help in all sectors of the festival, such as in the audience reception, exhibition set-up and production as well as in guided tours.
By participating at ADAF you will have the opportunity to live a unique experience and contribute, according to your dexterity, skills, interests and availability, to all creative and organizational processes of the 14th edition of the festival.
At the end of the festival, all volunteers will receive a certificate of participation.
The deadline for applications is April 15th. Participants must be over 18. For more information and to submit an application, click here.
