Curators

It’s not easy to come up with a schedule for an event that approaches such a broad subject as digital culture. For this reason, we have invited 11 curators to join our team and help us out with this task – people who worked in various areas of digital culture, keeping up with the debate and following national and international agendas.

Together, Cicero Inacio da Silva, Claudio Prado, Daniela Silva, Felipe Fonseca, Gabriela Agustini, Ivana Bentes, Pablo Capilé, Pedro Abramovay, Pedro Markun, Rodrigo Savazoni and Sérgio Amadeu analyzed, one by one, the 358 projects submitted though our open call, discussing the viability of their execution within the structured designed for the Festival.

But that was not all. The Festival proposes itself as a common space for linking projects and networks from all over the world. In order to create a proficuous space, the team of curators evaluated which projects are more alike and capable of interacting and dialoguing with each other. Our goal is to streghten the debate and the cultural production as a whole, both from a practical as from a theoretical perspective, and find new paths for the penetration of the digital in the brazilian culture.

If your project has not been selected, it doesn’t mean it’s not qualified. It may be requested for a next edition of the Festival.

The results of our curatorship work will soon be announced here in our website. Thank you for your patience!
