There is something really powerful in the act of putting your phone down. Sfree encourages face to face conversations and art making without devices. We embrace technology for the good it brings us but we also acknowledge how it prevents us from being fully present, here and now.
Upon arrival to the artistic event, you will place your cellphone in a box. You will be given a pen and paper to write down thoughts, create a new contact, or to remember for later that thing you had the need to Google, or that picture you wanted to take.
