GreenHouse NAXOS it is a metaverse: a virtual social platform. It is a digital playground. It is a social space to meet like minded people and enter NODE20 from all around the world!
NODE Forum for Digital Arts has accepted the challenge of bringing people together and fostering debate and involvement in new hybrid spaces. In collaboration with studioNAXOS, they have designed this 3D festival venue – a platform for gathering, for meetups and workshops. Based on Mozilla Hubs the virtual Greenhouse offers several spaces for you to discover. Share your work and ideas, enjoy virtual performances, explore hidden chambers, our virtual teens hackspace and installations that reflect on sustainable artistic practice, activism and new hybrid art forms.
GreenHouse NAXOS also represents one possible narrative of a sustainable transformation of the Naxoshalle in Frankfurt/Main into a climate-neutral public space for social encounters in its neighbourhood. You are invited to prototype a place for innovative theatre practice and performance!
Discuss, construct and draw your idea of a Naxoshalle 2.0 and join the conversation about public spaces (both in the analogue and digital realm), digital venues, accessibility for new audiences and diverse groups, performative futures, spatial design and moderation needs.
If you are local to Frankfurt, you can enter GreenHouse NAXOS through a VR-Experience located in the physical space of Naxoshalle or within a public guided tour @Waldschmidtstraße 19, 60316 Frankfurt.
Please be aware that according to the regulations regarding Covid 19 you can only enter Naxoshalle with a mask covering your mouth and nose. There will only be three people allowed inside the experience at the same time which might result in some waiting time on-site. We make sure to disinfect the VR-equipment used after every visitor!
