Robot Selfie

This is a past event which has now ended.

What happens when you give a robot a massive canvas and a spray can and ask it to paint people?

Norfolk & Norwich Festival invites you to be drawn by Kaleider’s non-learning AI. Then, when you’re happy, you can submit it to be drawn, not by humans, but by a wall-drawing robot. We intend to create a massive mural of many faces. Strangers next to each other, simultaneously present, and yet apart. At a time when we are distanced from each other, Kaleider’s Robot Selfie brings us together.

The Robot is ready to draw! Click through the link to submit your selfie, and see yourself painted in Festival Gardens

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
