about PLUG-IN CUBE
During COVID 19 and global changes, we faced a new reality and realized the complexity of interactions offline. With this in mind, we developed “Plug-in Cube”, which is an alternative to “Plug-in”. The “Plug-in Cube” is a modular lighting installation that will become an identity sign of our platform and will be the permanent "room" for broadcasting and performances within our project. It is a transportable object which will allow us to set the live streamings of audio and visual performances from different locations.
“Plug-in” has a goal to collaborate with both local and international film producers, performing arts professionals, as well as with theaters, clubs and other interested institutions. And also in the future to create a network of specialists that will expand the opportunities of artists working in this field.
The LABELS are designed to archive and distribute works by audio-visual artists, so "Plug-in" will help them to find producers and organizations relevant to the industry, both in Armenia and abroad. We also will provide technical and promotional support.

It is an online platform for musicians worldwide. The goal of the platform is to provide "no border scene".
