FREE Digital Streams at prototypefestival.org

Over the course of nine festivals, PROTO has transitioned from potential to essential. In January of 2013, PROTOTYPE soared onto the scene with five genre-defying pieces and has since produced and presented 63 innovative works and welcomed 2,034 artists through our proverbial doors. As our 10th anniversary approaches, we’re eager to celebrate all that PROTOTYPE has contributed to the field. Join us as we look back at art from the Netherlands to New York to South Africa and beyond to reflect on the cutting-edge work PROTOTYPE has championed and where our esteemed artists will lead us in the next ten years.

All streams are live on the PROTOTYPE homepage for one showing only.
Each stream will be followed by a conversation with the creators.
No registration required, free to attend from anywhere in the world.
