Due to the difficult situation, we are going through, the Artist Alley of this year's Chaniartoon - International Comic & Animation Festival, is impossible to take place in a natural space.

In an effort to support artists in the best possible way, we will take the following steps to make Artist Alley digitally in the best possible way.

1. Digital Artist Alley: Virtual reality application for VR Mask & application for desktop PC. The user will be able to digitally visit the Artist Alley site, to see the work of the artists as well as their videos.

2. Web Artist Alley: Artist Alley will be hosted on the festival website, in a special category where the visitor will be able to see the information of each artist, as well as indicative samples of his works.

3. Livestreaming Presentations: The artists will present in live-streaming video their comics or some of their work

4. Augmented Reality Exhibition: This year's exhibition will be accessible through the application of the festival for mobile phones and tablets. The viewer will be able to see the whole exhibition through augmented reality technology, taking a walk in the old port of Chania. An outdoor digital exhibition.

Artists who are interested in participating in the above activities are invited to fill in the relevant form on the website http://www.chaniartoonfest.gr/index.php/el/artist-alley.

The cost is free for all artists, in an effort to show their work during this difficult time.
