Electrofringe is a hands-on, all-in new media arts festival dedicated to
unearthing emergent forms, highlighting nascent trends and encouraging young and
developing artists to explore technology and its creative possibilities.

Electrofringe will take place in Newcastle as part of the
This Is Not Art Festival from 30 September - 4 October 2004.
The directors for 2004 are Gail Priest, Wade Marynowsky and Emma Stewart.

We are now seeking EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST from new media artists, curators,
artsworkers, writers and producers who would like to be involved.

Possible areas for investigation include (but are not limited to) sound,
audiovisual, web, game art, wireless, digital communities, software, art &
science, robotics, custom electronics, gestural interfaces and media based
installation and performance.

Electrofringe is a skills and arts development festival thus the dominant format
consists of panels, workshops and masterclasses.
Please bear in mind that there are limited opportunities for exhibitions and
presentations of full works. Gigs will be arranged by the This Is Not Art
Festival Gigs Coordinators in consultation with the individual festivals with
artist drawn from the festival program so please apply with the festival format
in mind.

We will be doing a separate call for screen works for the ElectroProjections
program later in 2004 to enable more artists to make work during the year.

If you are interested in being an Electrofringe State Representative we would
also love you to make contact and tell us which area of new media arts you would
like to contribute to the development of in the Electrofringe 04 program.

Please complete the form below and email to electrofringe@octapod.org by 1st
April 2004.
We will contact you if we require further information and examples of your work.
