SLINGSHOT ATHENS to ATHENS Festival
CALL FOR ENTRIES 2015
SLINGSHOT ATHENS to ATHENS Festival is a new platform for creativity and cultural dialogue. It is a space and time capsule that connects cultural pluralism from Athens, Greece to Athens, Georgia. Two SLINGSHOT Festivals will take over Athens-Georgia and Athens-Greece between March 26th to 28th, 2015, with events streamed and projected from one city to the other, in counterpart venues.
SLINGSHOT is a hybrid festival that allows a diverse audience to engage with music, art and tech as a continuum across pop, alternative and experimental genres. Art pervades the urban environment, indoors and out, knitting the festival area together and encouraging discovery, crossing over, and active engagement.
SLINGSHOT highlights interactivity, sound, video and audiovisual works, mobile and locative media, innovative performance, and art integrated with the urban environment.
