NOW digital festival at TMS 18 - 27 October 2019
A 10-day festival celebrating the creative use of computers organised by Genetic Moo in collaboration with The Margate School.
As events and technologies turn our world inside out and upside down, the art world is also being shaken up. Computers encourage new approaches based on free, open, online, shared, collaborative, massively parallel processes where everyone is involved: filming, documenting, playing, making, building and creating. Electrical energies are bursting out, pulsating and mutating into the world and there is no stopping them.
Digital art is alive and it is spreading. NOW digital champions this evolution in creativity
At NOW digital you can engage with interactive art, try your hand at creative coding and experience film, music, electronics and visuals made by a growing local digital scene. Your creations will be instantly added into this ever-changing show.
NOW digital is organised by artist duo Genetic Moo. Over the last two years, we have been working with Victoria Barrow-Williams (Creative Learning and Participation Manager at Dreamland Margate) on large scale projects helping hundreds of children and adults get creative with computers and NOW digital will showcase the results.
Venue: The Margate School in the former Woolworths building on Margate High Street
Dates: Fri 18 – Sun 27 Oct, open daily 12-6pm with some lates
