Needless to say that if you are a part of the world of digital arts you should definitely try to visit the festival. You will not only learn a ton about your professional approach but also have a lot of fun roaming around the island.
The 4th edition of the Unscripted festival which took place earlier this year in September saw a large number of beginners, mid-level, and professional digital artists have a get together and enjoy a gala time. One of the primaries focuses of this edition was on ‘unscripted photography’ which had professional digital media photographers give talks on nature photography and also Instagram marketing and developing the ability to grab the picture out of things or as Dennis Minty said in his talk ‘developing the photographic eye’. Quite a few digital art galleries were set up where artists could both learn about new methods and formats and also check out their contemporaries. One of the most populated workshops was the one on Visual Poetry by Lauren Holden.There were also various workshops held on capturing ‘unscripted moments’ via various digital art forms.
Apart from the learning side of things there were also Yoga sessions by the sea, a great feast, and multiple treks around the island.
Over the 4 days of September the town of Twillingate turned into a fun hub of tourists from the digital arts world.
The next edition is set to happen from the 19th of September till the 22nd next year and it features a host of various professionals imparting knowledge as well as regular galleries.
The reason why Unscripted Twillingate is one of the best digital arts festivals is because they do not only tend to the technical part of the festival but also the festive part of it.
