‘Carnival in a Box’ is a new, free online website that showcases Carnival arts and culture – in this year when carnivals everywhere have been cancelled. As so many elements of our lives are being delivered in cardboard boxes, the project’s creators began to wonder what would be delivered in a box of Carnival!
They’re collecting videos from carnival artists and bands, to produce an online parade and virtual gala, adding activities that will bring Carnival home. They’re including music and animation, and experimenting with an exciting AR (augmented reality) presentation.
Alongside the #NHCathome online Notting Hill Carnival, they’re helping to keep the Spirit of Carnival alive, and bringing Carnival home this summer. You even have the opportunity to take part; if you would like to send them a video showcasing your work, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
