Dear Digital Futures faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students,

We are excited to announce the Call for Submissions, Call for Student Exhibition Directors, and Call for Volunteers for the third annual Digital Futures OPEN Show!

The Call for Submissions can be found here:
Deadline: Sunday, December 9th at 11:59PM.

The Digital Futures OPEN Show is where we show our best and most interesting work that’s happening RIGHT NOW. The collection of work presented is intended to represent a survey of current ideas, concepts, themes, theories, tools, techniques, and trends being explored by the Digital Futures community.  This annual collection is shared with the public in an annual exhibition and archived in the OPEN Show catalog.

OPEN comes from the fact that this call is open to our whole community. The show will include works from current Digital Futures undergraduate students, graduate students, AND faculty. For anyone who has asked the question “What IS Digital Futures anyway?” – we’re hoping this exhibition will continue to provide some answers.

Open Show 2019 will be held at the OCADU Graduate Gallery.

The schedule (to be confirmed) is as follows:

  • Thursday, January 31st, 1-5PM: Project Installation
  • Thursday, January 31st, 5PM: Initial Walkthrough
  • Friday, February 1st, 1PM-8PM Open Hours
  • Friday, February 1st, 5PM-8PM Opening Reception
  • Saturday, February 2nd, 1PM-5PM Opening Hours
  • Saturday, February 2nd, 5PM-7PM Breakdown

We are also looking for students and faculty to join the Selection Committee, Design Team, Documentation Team, as well as to help with other elements of the actual show. In addition we are looking for (2) student Exhibition Directors to help with the overall organization and management of the exhibition.

The Call for Volunteers can be found here:
Deadline: Sunday, December 9th at 11:59PM.

We very much look forward to working with you all on this year’s exhibition!
