Women in Digital Culture
Utopia Festival Call for Submissions
January 30, 2012
Vancouver women who are actively involved in digital culture as artists, performers, writers, or musicians are invited to share their ideas for the second annual Utopia Festival, presented by W2 Community Media Arts.
Submissions can range from ideas and works in progress to fully completed projects. There will be a focus on contributors with experience mentoring other women; collaborative, innovative, multidisciplinary projects; projects with ongoing or legacy potential; and younger women breaking boundaries with new tactics.
“By connecting world-class artists with local women music makers or those considering careers in digital culture, Utopia Festival is taking crucial steps in bridging the so-called digital divide along gender lines,” says W2’s Lianne Payne.
Applicants are invited to submit proposals—including a bio, a short project description (500 words), any other digital information, and any technical requirements—by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person at the W2 Media Café (111 West Hastings Street).
The festival, which runs from March 3–10, features performances and peer-led workshops, as well as special events on International Women’s Day (Thursday, March 8).
