On all five continents, French and foreign amateurs and professionals gather to (de)code, to create, to play and to think with digital cultures, all in a festive environment.
Workshops, debates, performances, exhibitions, hackathons, escape games, etc. invite to question the forms, the practices, the uses and the stakes of the digital revolution we are currently facing, while trying to identify the future changes of our society: equality and diversity, participative democracy, transhumanism, robotics, new forms of artistic creation, gastronomy and technology, language and education, access to knowledge, cultural heritage valorization, etc.
This large celebration of digital cultures develops every year and gathered close to 60 participant countries and 85 cities in 2019. It underlines the commitment of the Institut français and the French cultural network abroad to facilitating the general public’s access to new technologies, to showcasing the strong diversity of French creations, to building long-lasting partnerships with foreign professionals and to enabling international collaborations between artists, professionals and the audience.
