We want to inspire the next generation to look at Science, Technology & Art in new ways and come up with innovative ways to solve problems. Engineering is not only for building bridges, but it can be used to design new music, new approaches in digital media and new tech that you wear with flair. Art is not only for drawing pretty pictures, but rather Artists are discoverers as well as creators. They can use technology to create art and investigate new science – giving us a new perspective on our world.

It’s a place to introduce and celebrate Louisiana’s achievements within Science, Technology & Art. A place for people to learn about new opportunities developing right here in Baton Rouge.

In previous years, the Red Stick Animation festival has been a highly visible and productive connection with Louisiana and the Baton Rouge community. We believe that the international exposure and community connection that a festival like Red Stick provides is much needed for the community. However, we are proposing a rebranding and retooling of the festival - to an event that will be focused on Digital Media (including, but not limited to animation), maker-fairs, experimental music concerts, digital art exhibits, game jams and other technology derived events. We would like to invite you to our new festival in 2018 in April 24-28, 2018.
