Building Digital Art & New Media Art Community in South East Asia

Abdul Shakir (CO-Founder/Multimedia Artist, Filamen)

Description

South East Asia is rich with tradition and culture, but most of the time it was viewed as traditional art. What if we bring it into a different medium and give a new life to it? In this sharing we can see a glimpse on how we can use arts and technology as a tool to not only connect people but also bring people from different geography and demography together. Making arts more accessible and enjoyable by mass audiences. Connecting people across different countries and breaking the language & culture barrier.
