The Broward County Cultural Division and Mad Arts will host the third annual Ignite Broward, a family-friendly festival of interactive art and technology, January 24-28. The festival will feature an array of immersive and interactive light and sound-based experiences created by top national and international artists and designers using the most innovative digital technologies across Fort Lauderdale and Dania Beach.
At the festival kickoff on January 24, at 7 p.m. in the atrium of the Museum of Discovery & Science, guests will dance to an audiovisual show featuring projection art by Holly Danger and electronic music by Tapered Shapes.
Throughout the festival, Mad Arts will host hands-on workshops, lectures, and performances by Tine Bech Studio, Richard Vergez, and Danger. From poetry readings to live performances that integrate traditional mural painting with digital projection art by Rosanna Kalis, these programs are curated for everyone to experience the power of immersive art.
This year’s festival features artists from the United States, France, Japan, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, and Canada. Several of the artists will have their works remain on view for one year at the new Mad Arts Museum, set to open on January 30.
