V’R’ STORYTELLERS OPEN CALL VR Mentorship/Exhibition, hosted by Darağaç. 20.03.2021 - 18.04.2021 12:00 - 17:00 (CET) [not: tarihi bu şekilde girelim, saat gerekiyorsa onu da ekleyebilirsiniz]
Amber Network Festival hosts an international online VR workshop and hackathon. V’R’ Storytellers invites artists, urbanists, designers, coders, 3D artists, photographers and other professionals to generate creative stories for a virtual exhibition in Umurbey Neighbourhood (Izmir/Turkey) hosted by Darağaç Collective. Regardless of its location on the map, this district particularly reminds us of many common problems which are discussed throughout the world. The V’R’ Storytellers revolves around a series of hands-on workshops where artists and participants can share their projects and insights, and concludes with a 3-day hackathon.
During the hackathon, participants will be invited to utilize VR and develop artistic experiences to the theme: boundaries of urban transformation/gentrification/renewal and refugee/immigrant/guest/neighbor. These concepts support the scope of the festival's theme of Post-Digital Ignorance and the urban texture. Interested participants will be encouraged to utilise the Umurbey Neighbourhood/Daragac as a canvas for their work though it is not a requirement.
No previous experience is required. Women, POC, LGBTQ+ and others under-represented in the tech world are highly encouraged to apply.
