What type of submission/proposal are you looking for?


Digital art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology or new media as an essential part of the creative making and/or presentation process. We are seeking pre-recorded presentations (either in traditional or 360 camera video) regarding the use of digital media for therapy, education, and research practices. Also, we are requesting audio and/or visual digital media artists to supply still images, video work, virtual and augmented reality (VR & AR) projects, electronic or mixed component music or other aural works, and any mixed media possibilities for symposium showcasing as well.

These creative works may be finalized, still in process, or currently under experimentation. We are seeking that works that are pre-recorded and edited into a digital file format to broadcast the day of the symposium. However, we are also open to a few live performances that could occur at one of the DICATS hive sites. For live or pre-recorded digital works, we are also seeking artists who wish to participate actively in the symposium or for a Q&A session regarding their submitted work.

Please email the DICATS team if you have further questions or ideas to explore.
