Artists collaborate on UNESCO project
Wednesday, February 23, 2022 by Tai Moses
Thanks to UNESCO, several Austin artists are participating in a four-month collaborative project with 13 other cities with the theme of PLAY, “a direct response to the lack of playfulness in everyday human interaction throughout the pandemic,” according to the news release from the city. As Sylnovia Holt-Rabb, director of the Economic Development Department, explained, “Austin is widely recognized as a collaborative community at the forefront of media arts technology. We are pleased to support Austin’s media arts talent in developing a road map to secure capital, patronage and capacity building through the lens of the UNESCO Creative City Network.” City to City, as the collaborative online project is known, involves teams of artists who are “created and encouraged to collaboratively create high-quality media art pieces to be disseminated within the UNESCO Creative Cities Network as well as to a wider audience.” Learn more about the project here.
