BE A PART OF THE AUDIOVISUAL AND NEW MEDIA ART FESTIVAL – IZIS!

Written by PiNA June 17, 2022

Festival IZIS is an annual event and exhibition, presenting international forward-thinking new media artists and audio/visual acts. It was created by artists, cultural producers, curators and poets from the Slovenian coast in 2013.

The festival explores the impact of technology on culture, society and nature through the lens of cutting-edge artistic works. It gathers artists, thinkers and an adventurous crowd who experience new narratives that give insight to complex topics such as audio/visual techniques, robotics, hybrid materials, kinetic sculptures, immersive installations, mind-bending experiences, and questions how technology will influence the future.

We are looking for 12 young, enthusiastic individuals, who will be joining our pre and during the festival activities and have a chance to feel the festival fever!

As a volunteer you can be involved in different types of activities:

___ CONSTRUCTION DEVELOPERS
Would you like to participate in the design of the venue in the old salt warehouse where the festival will take place? Every year the interior is adapted to the needs of the festival. In the role of construction developer you will have the opportunity to be part of the construction team that takes care of the interior design of the venue.

___ PHOTOGRAPHERS/ANIMATION/VIDEOMAKERS
Do you like to “capture the moment” and create creative contents? By performing multimedia tasks, you will be able to acquire and develop your basic film, multimedia, design and photographic skills and cooperate with our PR service, as support in designing materials and content of festival activities.

___ HOSPITALITY
Do you like interacting and meeting new people? Hospitality involves dealing with visitors face-to-face in a variety of ways. It is especially important during the opening hours of the exhibiting venue, during the festival activities and performances (opening day, closing day). The hospitality team will be taking care of the artists exhibiting at the festival as well.

___ WORKSHOP SUPPORT
There will be several workshops going on during the whole month of the festival. Those involved in the workshop support team will coordinate the workshops, which involves the production of the workshops, preparation of the venue, coordination, facilitating, preparation of the materials for the workshop and care for the well being of the participants. You will be able to participate as well! More information about the contents will be known soon.
