make art is an international festival dedicated to the integration of
Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) in digital art.

The third edition of make art – OpenOS - will take place in
Poitiers (FR), from the 24th to the 30th of November 2008.

make art offers performances, presentations, workshops and an
exhibition, focused on the encounter between digital art and free

We're currently seeking new, innovative FLOSS based works and
projects: music and audiovisual performances, presentations, software
demos, and installations.

This year make art focuses on the OpenOS: artistic, free, creative
use of the Operating System, hackability and modularity of FLOSS and
GNU/Linux, scripts as digital glue between applications, enhanced
possibilities for the technical expression of ideas, user empowerment
and artistic freedom.

Types of projects
We are looking for installations, performances, and presentations
that fit the focus of the festival. The festival theme OpenOS is not
meant to be restrictive, and can be linked to both the content as the
technical realisation of a work.

For examples of previous editions, please visit the archives of:
make art 2007 and make art 2006

make art is a small festival, we can provide selected projects with
housing, travel and a modest fee. We cannot provide artists with
funding for the development of projects. Larger projects should look
into finding additional funding to attend the festival.
