“The 3rd edition of Giving Poetry Wings (GPW) is an initiative of The Radioactive Blog, sponsored by the Creativate Digital Art Festival (A program of the National Arts Festival). This year, it turned into a virtual exhibition featuring collaborative work by 10 African artists – from South Africa and Malawi – who were selected to participate in a 5-day online workshop. The group of artists consists of dope poets and digital artists, who developed AR digital artworks and ambisonic poems based on a variety of themes. Each video compliments a digital artwork, and in order to get the full experience of the exhibition, visitors are advised to only enter the exhibition while wearing earphones/ headphones. While you navigate through the exhibition, listening to the melodies of Andrei Kwenda’s mbira, we hope that the overall experience leaves you craving for more similar content. Don’t forget to share the link with a friend.”
