adapts cultural content to new technological tools
The Yelo art organization was founded by multimedia artist Jelena Remetin and theater and film producer Tatjana Aćimović in 2016. The third member of the organization is music producer and composer Damir Šimunović.
All three members are active in various fields of cultural activity. However, they all came together to emphasize interdisciplinary projects based on virtual reality, digitization of content and sound software, and technology as an increasingly present dramaturgical tool. Through research practice in collaboration with numerous artists and research associates and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) in Zagreb, Yelo creates a platform for creative reflection and unites artistic categories combining the power of theatrical expression, narration, sound field, movement and virtual reality. and multimedia. Part of her team are also experts for people with special needs.
The organization independently implements its projects and programs, from preparation through the production and realization process, including promotional and dissemination activities because it already has experience in creating similar programs and projects, both the art organization and its associates. The realization of individual projects was achieved through the engagement of volunteers in terms of administrative / organizational support and promotional support.
