Name of the event: “City to City: PLAY!”: UNESCO Creative Cities of Media Arts join forces to foster international collaboration
After the successful pilot project City to City: Human Responsability – featuring the joint work of artists from nine Creative Cities of Media Arts in a virtual gallery – this year, 14 Creatives Cities of the Media Arts Cluster including Austin (United States of America), Braga (Portugal), Cali (Colombia), Changsha (China), Dakar (Senegal), Enghien-les-Bains (France), Guadalajara (Mexico), Gwangju (Republic of Korea), Karlsruhe (Germany), Košice (Slovakia), Sapporo (Japan), Toronto (Canada), Viborg (Denmark) and York (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) are joining forces to embark on a new international online artistic collaboration.
Following the launch of a formal call, 13 artists were selected to participate in a three month long collaborative project, taking advantage of the opportunity to exchange ideas, team up and pitch proposals, in line with the City to City 2021 theme ‘PLAY!’, a direct response to the lack of “playfulness” in everyday human interaction endured throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Newly created artists teams are encouraged to collaboratively create high quality media art pieces, which will be disseminated within the UNESCO Creative Cities Network and to a wider audience.
