CGA’s Enter the MetaClub hybrid event brings exciting digital art and thrilling industry talks to Kaleidoscope of Culture (September 2 – 5) in Novi Sad, the central event to mark this town being acknowledged as the European Capital of Culture 2022.

 Designed to expand our audience reach to the general public interested in digital art, the forthcoming event focuses on the CGArts, our artistic content track. We’ll use this as an opportunity to explore metaverses and digital spaces created by some of the most exciting artists of today – Tanja Vujinović and Andreas Wannerstedt.

Besides the exhibit, CGA Novi Sad brings a rich additional program under the wing of the educational content track, CGAcademy. A big part of the CGA Novi Sad additional program will focus on Unreal Engine and animation through various discussion panels, lectures, and industry sessions.

Registration for the event is open and required. By registering your presence, you will help us save you a seat on-site and help you avoid the crowd. This will also keep you informed about the upcoming online program if you decide to watch the live stream at home.
