Call for proposals
Kernel is a wide space for ideas and projects: a place for meeting, exchange and dialogue, not only between the public, well-known and emerging artists -developing their own expressivity participating in the alteration of the contemporary artistic language- but also between them and researchers, writers and curators who wish to submit and raise reflections in the debate of the emerging trends, on the relationship between art and technology.
In order to continuously develop and grow the Kernel platform, the Organization opens a call without deadline, by which it intends not only to select proposals and projects to participate in the Kernel Festival, but also to offer the opportunity to be included in a program of events and occasions that will be distributed throughout the year in different locations, to further increase the opportunities for visibility and promotion for the artists and their projects.
Therefore, the call is open not only to innovative and experimental projects, works and performances, but also to conferences, meetings and workshops. Submitted proposals can refer to different fields of technological and digital expression, including: Electronic Music, Audiovisual Mapping, Interactive & Digital Art, Temporary Architecture.
Among the types of projects that will be considered, are included:
- project of electronic music of any style, expressed in the live sets form
- audiovisual live performances, short film, VJing and public interaction, architectural mapping or any other mapping project – in indoor or outdoor
- projects of interactive, generative, digital, electronics, kinetics, robotics art; software art, net art; video, sound, light installations, performances and actions – indoor or outdoor
