RE–FEST 2024

A weeklong broadcast featuring audio/visual artwork from every corner of the earth.

CultureHub is going live for one full week with a broadcast that features video artwork by artists from as many countries/cultures⧫ as possible. This durational experiment will criss-cross the globe with a stream of short videos punctuated with live segments produced by international partners. Re–Fest will take place online on LiveLab Broadcaster+, an open source platform that allows artists to take over the controls, so the broadcast is not singularly controlled from one location or curated from one vision, and includes real time interactions with the audience.

The theme of Re–Fest 2024 is Re-Source which asks the question: how do we open source Re–Fest so that artists and audiences can participate from anywhere in the world?

• Help us include as many countries as possible! Share the open call with friends and colleagues around the world.
• We recognize that how borders are drawn and countries are defined is fraught. We aim to be as inclusive as possible with the goal of including at least one work from every country.
• LiveLab Broadcaster is a browser based low-latency livestreaming platform that allows for real time interactions with online audiences created by CultureHub.

Open call submissions will be open until June 3, 2024.
Re–Fest will be live June 5–11, 2024.

NASHi Experimental Theatre Club (Ukraine), Eho animato (Serbia), Bold Theatre (Kenya), Companhia Nova de Teatro (Brazil), SeoulArts (Korea), CultureHub NYC & LA, and more TBA!

CultureHub’s annual festival that brings artists, activists, scientists, and technologists together to explore our role in re-shaping the future. For the 11th anniversary of Re–Fest, CultureHub welcomes the public as co-creators of the festival, which will take place online only as a durational livestream. Artists, activists, and technologists can participate from anywhere in the world.

As we enter the second decade of Re-Fest and bring the focus back to offline in-person activities, we are exploring the ways in which the festival is presented. Re-Fest 2024 will be an open source, global festival. We will activate new and existing relationships around the nation to provide a platform for creators to modify and experiment with the ingredients that make up Re–Fest as well as the ways in which they participate in their own local Re–Fest events.
