Digital about "DIGI"

In today's society it seems like almost anyone or anything can be accessed at the click of a button and a scroll of a screen. While technology has evolved and reshaped the way we communicate, DigiFest South is a demonstration of how modern society has changed for the better. DigiFest South is an annual digital arts festival and interactive tech expo that celebrates how digital technology combined with artistic creativity has helped our modern society.

    Remember Bill Nye the Science guy? He was my only saving grace in 6th grade Science class. Usually I would doodle the days away, but on the rare occasion we got to watch a Bill Nye video I would be glued to the tv literally absorbing the material. Why? Because Bill made it fun, he conducted hands on demonstrations and used cool colors and effects.

Things have gotten much cooler and much more hands- on since then. You don't want to miss DigiFest South, it is something that will truly blow you, your kids, or even your fifteen year old nephew who never puts down an X-Box controller away.
You can stay informed and up to date with DigiFest South by visiting our website, but you can also follow us on Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook.
