BYOB - Bring Your Own Beamer

BYOB


BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) is an open source DIY event. Artists collaborate over the course of an evening to create a mega, moving, breathing multi media beast. BYOB is a celebration of new and old media. The event is driven by the participants who bring their art, and amplified by the presence of an audience. BYOB is for anyone who is interested in moving image, projections, visual art, digital art, light, participatory art, sound and performance.

The only requirement for participants is that they are self sufficient to plug and play, in order to showcase their art. For example, projector laptop combo, OHP, carousel slide projector or shadow box.

First initiated by Rafaël Rozendaal in 2010, BYOB is now an international movement.

Over 80 BYOB events have taken place throughout the world so far. From New York, Berlin to Jerusalem, and now Wellington. Facilitated by Raylene Beals and Naomi Lamb, BYOB Wellington is an event in which the participants create their own show within the 2013 Fringe Festival program. We provide the venue, which will be revealed when registrations open January 7th 2013, participants provide the wow.

[Update: We are very pleased to announce we are hosting the BYOB Wellington event at the Circus Hub in Newtown. A fantastic warehouse style space with white walls, 3 phase power no noise restrictions, what more could an artist want?!]

Prepare to be delighted and surprised as you, along with the organizers and participants, discover the hidden talent that Wellington holds. “Yes that’s right, it will only be through the process of registration that we will start to have any idea what this show will look like” - Raylene Beals. “Just like a pot luck dinner however there is no doubt that there will be something for everyone”- Naomi Lamb A Sound Artist / Musician will be announced closer to the event. BYOB encourages people to like the facebook page early on so they can get updates on deadlines.
