Digital Carnival Z: Virtual Festival Launch

April 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm PDT

Free

Event Recording

Event Description

Join us in celebrating the virtual launch of Digital Carnival Z with a traditional welcome from Cecilia Point, a special appearance by Featured Artists Nancy Lee 李南屏 and Kiran Bhumber ਕਿਰਨਦੀਪ ਕੌਰ ਭੰਬਰ, and a live performance from Montreal-based creative coder, engineer, thinker, poet, and performer Kofi Oduro/Illest Preacha.

Cinevolution’s annual flagship event, Digital Carnival is a festival of cutting-edge media art for community and artistic audiences of all ages. This year’s theme of Z references the gender-neutral pronoun ‘zie,’ the emergent generation-Z, and the possibilities for moving beyond the XX/XY binary.

Setting the stage for the festival, Illest Preacha‘s performance is part of “Digital Exploration of the Expansion,” a work of speculative fiction presented through live coding, creative coding, and other mediums that explore how the body can be reimagined.

Come to the festival launch for a chance to meet the artists and join us in raising a glass to these bold voices #BeyondtheBinaries.

ASL interpretation, descriptive language, and automated captions in English will be provided throughout the event. The event will be recorded, and an English transcript will be made available with the recording after the event.
