The project, Pause/Play: Culture under Pressure, will take place online from September to October and in Yerevan, Armenia, from November 6th to 12th, 2023. The aim is to support artists and cultural practitioners in Armenia and Georgia, as well as professionals who have had to leave their home countries due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and political repressions in Belarus, by learning and exchanging knowledge and experience of use of digital technologies for artistic practices. Pause/Play: Culture Under Pressure was started in 2022. It includes online and offline lectures, presentations, and QA sessions with selected speakers and mentors, followed by lab and public events in Yerevan. The chosen concepts of the participants will be presented at the exhibition and the pitching sessions.
