Creators Project Festival October 15-16
In case you haven’t been paying attention, Vice Media and Intel have quietly (or not so quietly) revolutionizing the artistic landscape with their ground-breaking partnership The Creators Project. From their website:
The Creators Project is a global network dedicated to the celebration of creativity, culture and technology. At a time in the history of the arts where digital technology has revolutionized distribution, democratized access, and re-imagined the scope and scale with which an artist can create a vision and reach an audience, The Creators Project is a new kind of arts and culture channel for a new kind of world.
Well now they’re going to have a big-ass festival in Brooklyn on October 15-16 with Karen O’s new opera (directed by Adam Rapp) Stop The Virgens as a centerpiece.
For more information on the festival – which is FREE!!! with RSVP – click here.
This IS the arts funding model of the future, by the way. This partnership is putting new technology in the hands of cutting edge artists and giving them resources to create really cool stuff.
And if you check the artist roster you’ll notice there are no artists for whom theater, dance or performance is their primary medium (that I noticed) – which says WAY more about the state of contemporary performing arts than it does about the CP curatorial process.
