HELLO, I AM ...

The ACF Washington has developed a special social media project called Hello, I am ... (with the hashtag #ATinDC_YoungArtist), which will start in March 2018 and lasts throughout the year.

The idea is to offer outstanding Austrian art students the possibility to use the social media channels of the ACF Washington as a presentation platform for their work over a certain period of time and thus be able to directly reach and interact with an international audience. In cooperation with the three most important Austrian art universities – Universität für angewandte Kunst WienAkademie der bildenden Künste WienKunstuniversität Linz – two students of each university will be chosen to present their work for respectively six weeks on the ACF’s Facebook site (@acfdc) and website (www.acfdc.org). The presentation of each student will be also announced in our monthly newsletter. At the end of the year the student with the most „likes, shares & comments“ received will be awarded in an internal ranking and be invited to Washington DC to stay for a week and present his or her work in the premises of the Austrian Cultural Forum.
