Have you ever heard of a WhatsApp Book?
Are you ready to experiment and collaborate on a multidisciplinary project?
All you need is a story!
IFAS is looking for an original idea for a story/scenario to be developed in order to create a WhatsApp Book.
The selected story project will be developed in collaboration with other artists of various fields (visual art, film, sound, theatre, digital art) during a creative residency that will take place in October 2020. Due to the COVID-19 crisis this collaborative residency will happen remotely and therefore participants from any region of South Africa can participate.
The successful applicant will see his/her project developed by a team of creatives under the mentoring of french multimedia production experts. The successful applicant will receive a compensation fee as well as a fee for the story copyright.
The WhatsApp Book will be presented to the public in November 2020 during the Novembre Numérique programme.
