2nd International Games/ Media Art Festival

A MAZE. is the second international Games / Media Art Festival to be held in Johannesburg and will use spaces across Braamfontein, taking games and media art expression to the public in a way you never expected.

The goal of A MAZE. is to create an annual evolving international platform for African and European media artists and game developers. The festival opens up a playground for everyone who wants to experience creative expression with code, play and technology. A MAZE. / Johannesburg provides a three day program packed with lectures, panel discussions, indie games, interactive installations, street games, workshops, concerts and parties.

The founder of A MAZE. and festival director Thorsten S. Wiedemann says: “We are more than happy to announce that A MAZE. / Johannesburg is organized in partnership with the Digital Arts Department of the University of the Witwatersrand for a cycle of the next 4 years. This strong relationship between an academic institution and an international label guarantees sustainability and visibility world wide. This year we are welcoming artists, game developers, forward thinkers, entrepreneurs, nerds and geeks from all over Africa and Europe to share their knowledge and visions about games, art and technology. A MAZE. /Johannesburg is a public festival of creativity and progressive culture.”
