ADAF Live ~ Athens Digital Arts Festival
The International Festival for Digital Arts in Greece, Athens Digital Arts Festival, acting according to the circumstances and in full convergence with #DigitalSolidarityGR, is offering during the Greek quarantine a series of live digital art broadcasts for adults and kids.

The international audience can enjoy live video art and animations of exceptional aesthetics dedicated to adults and kids, as well as video documentation of performances and installations, tributes to artists and art currents. Moreover, in its 16 years of presence, ADAF has hosted a variety of international artists who will be talking about contemporary art, their experience in ADAF and in Greece and who are hoping to soon relive this experience.

The program will be aired every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at 19:00, while on the weekends the “ADAF Kids Live”  program will air at 11:00.  Special tributes will be announced separately on social media and will be aired in the afternoon zone. The live broadcast will be available on ADAF's  Facebook Page, Twitch, and Youtube channel

The content specially chosen by ADAF''s curatorial team, on total confidence that art and creation can contribute to the human soul on such difficult times, is aiming towards creative amusement for all of us, filling our houses with beautiful and interesting input which will help us mentally to break free from the quarantine. Unfolding our fantasy wings, we can accomplish another kind of freedom that will actively help us cope with the difficult requirements of our time.

The Αthens Digital Arts Festival has chosen for 2020 the thematic Technotribalism, stating that we are the first generation of people, in a world that is headed towards the over-crediting data. More current than ever on the Coronavirus circumstance, where every biometric and every scientific data is of vital importance, and every digital imprint feeds the entertainment hunger of the quarantine, ADAF is promoting, under the framework of their digital activities, collectivity, openness towards the treasure of knowledge, art, and science, proposing these ideals as the foundation for this new world. With their so far digital ventures, ADAF Live and #AthinaioiMesa in collaboration with Project210, they are expressing their solidarity towards all of us, responding to the call of the Ministry of Culture in Greece, for support towards cultural creativity.
