8x8 - tech art community meetup/crit session in March

:framed_picture::robot: 8x8 is a peer community of people who make art with technology. Each month we get together to share what we’ve been working on and get feedback. It’s all about coming together to learn from, share ideas and find out what’s going on in our scene.

:calendar: 8x8 meetup #7 is Tues March 1st September at 7pm - 8:30pm. Online.

We depend on people bringing their projects along, so please sign up!

There’s 4 slots available to share your idea/project or discuss

  1. 8 minute presentation, 8 minute feedback/discussion prompt
  2. 8 minute presentation, 8 minute feedback/discussion prompt
  3. 8 minute presentation, 8 minute feedback/discussion prompt
  4. 16 minute discussion on a question for the community

:mega: Everyone is welcome to speak no matter what your experience level or the state of your project.
:globe_with_meridians:You can talk about an idea that’s been bouncing around your head, a half developed project with something to see, or something you did a year ago that you’re really proud of
:question:You can also bring a question or discussion point without a project - we’ve previously had “is there any point in NFTs?”, “how do you make money as an artist working with tech?” And “Where’s the best place in the world for creative tech?”
:stopwatch: You get 8 minutes to present the most important thing about your work and then 8 minutes to hear feedback. Focus on one aspect to use the limited time to get the best response.
:arrow_left: Previous feedback sessions have been on a generative art screensaver, a sonic jacket for performances, and a new way of representing digital images
:eyes: You don’t need to bring anything at all. Coming along to listen, offer feedback and be part of the community is equally important.
:alarm_clock: Timing is strict so everyone gets a chance to speak. Organised bits will finish 9pm, then we’ll break up and chat for as long as you want.

If you’d like to take part please email me at tom.chambers@gmail.com and I’ll put you on the invite list.
