The Creativate Digital Arts Festival, presented by Standard Bank and the National Arts Festival, is a key part of the adventure that will be the Virtual National Arts Festival in 2020.

This year's online edition of Creativate will bring the best creative and tech makers worldwide straight into your home. In the Digital Art Workshops series, creative innovators will unveil how to use new technological tools to create dynamic works of art. These interactive workshops will be a space to explore new territories, work alongside and get feedback from the creatives at the top of games in multimedia industries. Experiments created in these workshops will also feature as part of the programme.

Coding, gaming, film, interactive arts, artificial intelligence, and visual arts will collide in the Creativate Exhibitions. Here you can experience how artists use technology to create new ways to explore and experience the creative world. You will be able to explore exhibitions where paintings dance and speak, watch films that grant you 360-degrees of vision, and participate in interactive, immersive art galleries.

If you’re an artist, technologist, futurist, animator, gamer, performer or musician who is reimagining, unravelling and questioning the new technological world, submit your project to be part of Creativate 2020 - visit
