best, Pavel Sedlak


CALL FOR APPLICATION

6TH  ASIA-EUROPE ART CAMP:
Ludic Times | The Art of Gaming
22 &shy; 29 July  2008
Singapore 

The Asia-Europe Art Camp project is an initiative  set up by Asia-Europe
Foundation (ASEF) in 2003 focusing on New Media Art.  The project aims at
developing a platform to promote dialogue between art  students from Asia and
Europe, to learn more about each otherıs contexts,  cultures and be inspired
during a week of lectures, workshops and public  events. Focusing more on the
creative process than on the ³artistic  product², the Art Camp has been
designed as a learning experience and an  opportunity for professional
development.

Built upon the  achievements of the previous five Art Camps, the 6th Art Camp
will gather  20 young artists or students, usually in their final year of
study, from  ASEM (Asia-Europe Meeting) countries for an intensive week of
workshops,  lectures and meetings as well as artistic and collaborative work.
A team of  Asia-Europe artistic advisors and resource persons specialised in
art and  technology will lead and facilitate the workshops during the Art
Camp.  

On the sidelines of the International Symposium on Electronic Art  (ISEA)
2008 and the Asia-Europe New Media Arts Policy and Practice Meeting,  the 6th
Asia-Europe Art Camp to be held in Singapore is conceptualised  around the
theme of gaming and will focus on the nature of our contemporary  ludic
culture while taking into account psychology of gaming and theories  of
gaming (as tools for social development and awareness, real-life  situation
simulations, artificial and augmented realities, serious games  for education
and games as an art form). Electronic, internet-based and  pervasive games
and their roles in urban society will be discussed as well  as the
possibilities for Asia-Europe game development collaborations  and
industry-artist-researcher partnerships.

Objectives 
· To  give participants the opportunity of an international, cultural  and
artistic learning experience and professional development by meeting up  with
renowned game art experts from Asia and Europe.
· To provide  participants with a genuine exposure on the development of new
media arts  in Asia and Europe especially by giving unique opportunities to
participate  actively in the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA)
2008 and  the Asia-Europe New Media Arts Policy and Practice Meeting.
· To encourage  and support any promising collaboration between participants
prior and  after the Art Camp.

Activities & Process

Online Platform  
An online platform will be activated a month before the Art Camp to  allow
the selected participants to initiate communication with one other  before
they meet physically.

Lectures | Workshop | Project work
A  team of experts including animators, software developers, artists  and
researchers will present various presentations served to explore  certain
core concepts and principles of the Art Camp. During the  workshops,
facilitators from Asia and Europe will introduce various new  media tools
such as Machinima, Unreal tournament (UT) engine, etc. These  workshops will
enable the participants to work in groups, present ideas and  discuss
concepts. 

Public presentation
The student participants  will conclude the Art Camp with a presentation of
their Works-in-progress  created during the workshop which will be screened
and showcased to the  public during the ISEA meeting.

Side Activities
The students will  also be given the opportunity to participate in the
acclaimed ISEA 2008  during the Art Camp as well as to contribute their

Organisers  

The 6th Asia-Europe Art Camp is organised by the Asia-Europe  Foundation in
partnership with the International Symposium on Electronic  Art (ISEA) 2008.

· Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) seeks to promote  better mutual understanding
and closer cooperation between the people of  Asia and Europe through greater
intellectual, cultural, and  people-to-people exchanges.  These exchanges
include conferences,  lecture tours, workshops, seminars and the use of
web-based platforms.  Established in February 1997 by the partners of the
Asia-Europe Meeting  (ASEM), ASEF works in partnership with other public
institutions and civil  society actors to ensure its work is broad-based and
balanced among the  partner countries. http://www.asef.org

The Cultural Exchange Department  (CE) of ASEF seeks to provide young artists
and cultural professionals with  a unique environment for dialogue that can
evolve into positive artistic  interventions, dynamic cultural networks and
cultural policy development in  and between Asia and Europe. CEıs areas of
co-operation are young artistsı  exchange (new media, photography, dance and
music), process oriented  platforms and networks (museums, independent cinema
and autonomous cultural  centres), dialogue on policy and culture, and a
vision for an Asia-Europe  Cultural Portal (Culture360).

· International Symposium on Electronic  Art (ISEA), initiated in 1988, is
the worldıs premier media arts event for  the critical discussion and
showcase of creative productions applying new  technologies in interactive
and digital media. Held biannually in various  cities throughout the world,
this migratory event is being held in Asia for  the second time in its
history, after Singapore successfully secured this  bid.
ISEA 2008 will consist of an internationally juried media art  exhibition, a
peer reviewed academic conference and various invited  exhibitions, workshops
and partner events. Hosting ISEA 2008 represents  both an incredible
opportunity for Singapore team to define, shape and  affect media and
cultural developments in Singapore, as well as in the  Asian region and
beyond. It seeks to include as many culturally diverse  perspectives from the
Asian region to encourage cross-cultural dialogues on  the possibilities and
opportunities of media technologies globally.  www.isea2008.org
