The Connecting Cities Network is proud to announce the first International Connecting Cities Conference, which will be taking place this spring during the 15th anniversary ofMUTEK in Montréal from 26 to 28 May 2014.
Bringing together international experts from the field of urban media art, the symposium combines keynote presentations, workshops and panel discussions that explore three city visions: The Networked City, The Participatory City, and The Visible City. Furthermore, together with Montréal’s Partenariat du Quartier des spectacles, we discuss Montréal’s need for an urban digital laboratory in the context of the city’s recent efforts to gain Smart City status. Finally, the members of the Connecting Cities Network present manifestations of urban digital creativity from their various cultural contexts, from Berlin to Melbourne, from Sao Paulo to New York City.
The Montréal programme will also contain the 2014 CCN curators’ workshop.
As a follow-up, we strongly encourage you to plan a stay in Montréal from 25 May to 1 June to participate in the MUTEK festival and many other events of Montréal’s first Printemps numérique!
