Interactive Screen 1.0: Beautiful Lives (Scholarship Intensive)


Deadline:
Tue Jul 13, 2010 00:00

Location:
Canada

Program dates: August 14, 2010 - August 20, 2010

Now in its 15th instalment at The Banff Centre, Interactive Screen is the Banff New Media Institute’s flagship new media event. Its category-busting gambit is to mix a world’s worth of media makers, thinkers, and movers around an open theme, and see what happens. This year’s Interactive Screen 1.0: Beautiful Lives looks at the way new media intersects with our aspirations and ambitions, individual or collective, convergent or contradictory, for the betterment of life. This follows directly on the theme of Interactive Screen 0.9: The Makers, which explored the idea of a “society of makers,” redefining the structures of cultural ownership through ground-up creative action.

New media makers interested in developing a creative project or reflective essay related to this year’s theme, Beautiful Lives, are encouraged to apply to the Interactive Screen Scholarship Intensive. Throughout Interactive Screen 1.0, participants will have the opportunity to refine their projects and to broaden their knowledge and networks. They will work in close collaboration with the Banff New Media Institute's peer advisors and staff.

Scholarships are available for up to 10 Canadian and international applicants, and include focused mentorship and public presentation opportunities, a travel stipend of up to $550, and full financial support for program tuition, meals, and shared accommodations on The Banff Centre campus.

Scholarship participants will arrive for the Interactive Screen workshop two days early for an advanced mentorship session. During this time, participants will advance their ideas, and formulate their learning objectives and personal goals for the workshop. The projects will then be introduced to the main Interactive Screen conference, and receive further strategic advice and exchange from the international gathering.
