The EyeMyth Media Arts Festival is back in Mumbai with its fifth edition
EyeMyth Media Arts Festival returns to Mumbai with its fifth edition on November 29, 2019. Known for its convergence of global art, culture, and technology, the festival is designed as a playground for the next gen of creators, and it brings alive exciting forays into the future of immersive storytelling and new media expressions. Promising three days and nights of storytelling sets across key venues in Mumbai, Eyemyth delves into an exciting new world of unusual tools and ideas with radical artists, designers and technologists.
“The Indian digital arts scene is at the cusp of becoming exponentially more potent and diverse. The next decade of Indian creativity will hopefully create a distinct and powerful identity for its creators and their work globally. EyeMyth sees the need for entities like itself to articulate and expand on the emerging discourse around these new currents. There are very few safe spaces for these new communities to express their practice as well as build new creative networks. EyeMyth attempts to fill this space through its festival and its persistent programme called Future Fiction”, said Avinash Kumar - creative director, EyeMyth Media Arts Festival and co-founder, Quicksand Design Studio.
The three-day programming features panels discussions, conferences, new media showcases, and happening afterparties. Here are some of the highlights:
Massive Mixer - The Conference A two-day visual conference on the future of storytelling in India and beyond. With speakers Joelle Tobler, James Boyce, Mikaela Jade, Betty Sargeant and more.
Speculative Sunday - The Workshop Hands-on workshops that visualise radical cultural futures for India while learning new skills in speculative design and design fiction
