DAC-FRA is a new Digital Art Conference in Frankfurt where artists of all levels can come together to learn cool stuff, meet new people and enjoy 3 days of inspiring talks, workshops, live demos, portfolio reviews and more. 2017 is our first edition and the whole concept this year is to have a close connection between speakers and participants. For this reason we chose to host the conference at a centrally located hostel in Frankfurt, as well as accommodate all speakers there. Participants who choose to stay at the hostel will be fully immersed in the conference for 3 days as well as be able to see and talk to their favourite speakers for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This way we hope the connection between everyone is never lost and the potential for creative encounters remains high.
During the day the conference is mainly focused on 2D/3D/VFX workshops and lectures from our speakers, while the evening parties will be filled with more relaxing events like fireside talks, live drawing, exhibitions, VR painting and off course an art battle between participants sponsored by Wacom. Tickets for the evening parties are also available for non-conference participants so they can join us for a drink, see some interesting talks and cheer for their favourite artist in the art battle. Thursday evening before the conference we have a pre-conference gathering with the early arrivals, and on Sunday we go for an after-party gathering with the stayers.
