This challenge invites digital, mixed media and traditional artists to apply. We would like to see solutions that integrate technology with artistic media including but not limited to VR/AR/MR, projection and interactive experiences that give a hands on experience to an audience that ranges from children to adults.

Mozilla will be awarding grants to the winning applicants and The Tech Museum of Innovation will be showing finished pieces in May 2018.

Finalists will install their works at the Tech Museum of Innovation, the premier cultural institution of Silicon Valley in San Jose, California. 

The Tech’s landmark building welcomes more than 500,000 visitors a year with 135,000 square feet of hands-on opportunities to explore how technology is changing our lives.
