This period redefined the notion of contact on a worldwide level. The International Festival of Digital Arts in Greece, Athens Digital Arts Festival, is calling the artistic, technological and scientific world to submit their proposals for our hybrid (online and physical) edition of ADAF 2021 titled Tāctus focusing on the redefinition of human connection, both as a form of communication and physical contact

The past year, humanity went through a unique experience that affected everyday life, especially human relations. Human interaction of any form came in the spotlight, got fetishized, commented on, and coloured with all shorts of feelings, deconstructed and reconstructed with every possible way so it can pull through this situation. Connection became the object of discourse, expectation, deprivation, struggle, revolution.

Humanity is reinstating the notion of connection/communication, restoring it in public consciousness as the “beat” of this world. During this procedure and with the help of new media for its implementation, a new meaning of the notion was created that is not yet explored nor fully defined. Technology has been utilized gaining more and more ground offering contactless connection as a substitute in its struggle to fill in the physical void. For some this came as a release and to others as punishment, for everyone thought was an experience that forever changed the way we perceive human relations

Installations,Video Art,  Performances, Web Art, Animation, Digital Image, VR/AR, Games, Talks, Workshops, Kids (which contains all the above for children) are the categories on which you can  submit your projects here by filling in the according form below. The submission form for both physical and online festivals is the same. The shortlisted artists will be contacted via email for the process of their proposal and possible details for the display of their project.

Tāctus, in latin, touch, arrive, achieve, as well as beat/pulse in music.

A new norm, hybrid between physical and digital world,

join us in exploring.
