The biannual festival NODE – Forum for Digital Arts gathers designers, creative coders, digital artists and creative of the digital media scene since 2008. It aims to foster a critical reflection within the scene. The forum is supporting the creation of an innovative and responsible movement by encouraging new collaboration, interdisciplinary exchange and open knowledge sharing. The main goal of the forum is to empower individuals by encouraging them to experiment, prototype, innovate, to ask new questions and to provide answers.
