Description

Vector Festival is a participatory and community-oriented initiative dedicated to showcasing digital games and creative media practices. Presenting works across a dynamic range of exhibitions, screenings, performances, lectures, and workshops, Vector acts as a critical bridge between emergent digital platforms and new media art practice. The festival was founded in 2013 as the “Vector Game Art & New Media Festival” by an independent group of artists and curators: Skot Deeming, Clint Enns, Christine Kim, and Katie Micak, who were later joined by Diana Poulsen and Martin Zeilinger.

Vector Festival co-curators Katie Micak and Martin Zeilinger are redeveloping the 2020 edition of the festival as a modular, open-ended, and inclusive online platform in order to feature digital artworks, support media artists, and facilitate critical conversations that engage with the unprecedented crisis we are collectively experiencing.
