After the success of the Digital Media Festival in 2007, the UT-Portugal partnership is organizing a new edition. For 2008 the title will be “Future Places”.
With Future Places the partnership wants to reach a generation of creators who are breaking conventions. The call for entries is addresses to those who are blurring the lines not only between disciplines, but between the real and the virtual and between the commercial, the artistic, and the academic arenas. How can we explore the impact of new technologies in “real life”? How can new technologies build local communities, create new identities, new narratives, new forms of public interaction?
Virtually all Portuguese institutions in Higher Ed with the Digital Media area will be emailed the call for entries , which will be also posted this week still at www.utaustinportugal.org If you intend to submit an entry, a pre-registration is required. Future Places will take place on October 1 through 5 in the very new Edifício Douro (Fundação Juventude) in Porto.
