Movistar has created a platform where anyone can present an idea for a festival and have the possibility of having it come true.
The first step is to register at Artsy, where you can present your project. You can choose between a large format event – a festival, or a small format event – an exhibit.
After submitting it, it is your job to spread the word on every social media channel you can think of. Do a campaign to get the most like and visualizations possible on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube. One share on Facebook, a Youtube view or a hashtag mention gives you 1 point, one tweet gives you 2 points, and one vote at the Artsy website gives you three points.
All projects that can get more than 5.000 points will be judged and some will be chosen to become a reality.
Artsy has already made 3 projects come true:
LiveSoundtrack – a festival where musicians choose their favorite movies and create a new, original soundtrack that is be played with the movie during its exhibition.
Serializados – a festival for the TV show lovers.
SurfCitys Festival – the first arts festival focused on the theme: Surf vs City, with music, photography, sculpture, painting, theatre, cinema and illustration.
