Queertech.io and Midsumma Festival are calling for digital and new media works from queer identifying artists. Be part of the ongoing conversation about #QueerTech.
Curated by the Queertech.io artist collective and Midsumma Festival works selected will be premiered online and offline across multiple sites at Midsumma Festival 2018, including RMIT SPARE ROOM & LIGHTSCAPES.
Now more than ever, queer voices are vital to a continued socio-political discourse surrounding representation in a digital landscape. Queertech.io showcases a broad cross-section of the innovative, poignant and queer-as-hell works emerging from diverse queer communities.
Queertech.io 2017 included works from artists in ten countries and spanned video works, games, gifs, 3D models, animations and interactive works. After premiering at Midsumma Festival 2017, the Queertech.io collection toured nationally and internationally.
Artists at all stages of their careers are encouraged to apply. Submissions close on Sunday 12 November.
