In today’s society groups with common interest cluster in the virtual space forming tribes of the electronic space. Electronic tribes assert social power, are able to legitimate symbols and create or shape brands, fashions or movements that reach far beyond the boundaries of the community. During the past six months the invited artists have researched different e-tribes and tested new ways of reaching them through art in a project initiated by AltArt and British Council within the Creative Collaborations Programme.
The four day event includes an exhibition of artistic interventions connecting the real and virtual space, D.I.Y. workshops and a public discussion on the potential of the e-tribal environments to generate social, economical and creative impact.
