We are happy to come on board the CoLab TechArt Fellowship
, which is inspired by Jaaga
s resolve to grow the community of techartists and foster creative engagement in leading digital technologies. The Fellowship is offered online
and is directed to aspiring techart practitioners from any discipline of art and design. Meeting the challenges of the times, we present the CoLab Fellowship
as an online programme that opens the doors to exciting possibilities in international collaborations.
Selected creators will learn and make collaboratively with 20 like-minded fellows using Artificial Intelligence technologies. It is a unique opportunity for a community of hand-picked international fellows to use the limitations of the current moment to explore and showcase collaborative learning and making with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies. Over a two-week period they will spend time synchronously four hours daily, working and dialoging with peers and experts who come in as trainers, provocateurs and facilitators.
Fellows of BeFantastic’s CoLab will get access to a curated global community of creators as members of dara.network
Supported by the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore
, British Council’s Architecture and Design Festivals and Biennales grant, this edition of the CoLab Fellowship
creates a bridge between Germany
, South Asia and the UK.
