• Reconnect people with essential elements of the environment while raising awareness on climate change through visual arts. • Promote emerging art through an open call focused on new technologies and interactive narratives. • Encourage public participation, especially multimedia artists and art students in the fields of audiovisual art, Internet art, interactive art, and digital new media art, and fill conventional and nonconventional spaces of the cities with video art and interactive narratives.
