As part of this program two representatives of the Ladybamboo Foundation have been participating on the Expert Meeting for the Implementation of the Young Digital Creators Programme (28-30 April 2003, UNESCO Headquarters in Paris).
We concentrate our participation on the ongoing project on three subjects. For your better understanding we not only add some resource links to those topics here, but we also show some photos from the event. Keep posted, more is coming!
It is also our great pleasure to announce the official launch of the UNESCO Digital Arts Award 2003:
The award is co-organized by the Digi-Arts Portal team and IAMAS (Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences, Japan (http://www.iamas.ac.jp) This year, the prize is especially dedicated to the theme of "Digital Pluralism" in anticipation that digital technology and artistic creativity could highly promote intercultural dialogue. In support of young emerging digital artists around the world, we have also arranged the first prize winner to benefit from the 6-months artist-in-residence programme of IAMAS.
