SLINGSHOT Festival 2015

SLINGSHOT invites proposals for new or recent works for the SLINGSHOT Festival, March 26-28, 2015, in Athens, Georgia (USA).

SLINGSHOT – the new international nexus for music and creative innovation – takes over downtown Athens, GA March 26-28, 2015. Spread over 5 city blocks, SLINGSHOT spotlights music on stage, boundary-pushing artworks throughout the urban environment and a tech conference with leading innovators.

SLINGSHOT is a hybrid festival that allows a diverse audience to engage with music, art and tech as a continuum across pop, alternative and experimental genres. Art pervades the urban environment, indoors and out, knitting the festival area together and encouraging discovery, crossing over, and active engagement.

SLINGSHOT highlights interactivity, sound, video and audiovisual works, mobile and locative media, innovative performance, and art integrated with the urban environment. Site-specific proposals are encouraged.
