The purpose of CultureTech Challenge is to support the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the
UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage and to explore and
preserve evolving indigenous cultural expression from throughout the globe as indigenous artists
express their identity and stories through digital media and music.
The initiative provides indigenous artists and musicians with an opportunity to introduce their work to the global art and music community.
We encourage artistic expression that explores the indigenous artist’s cultural insights on the impact of digital technology on the evolving relationship between indigenous identity, place, the natural world and a shared sustainable future.
The exhibition will be presented virtually with a downloadable PDF publication for visual artists as well as audio and video media for musicians. Artist and Musician profiles will be made available through the exhibition website and linked to sponsoring organizations.
