At the same time as the Ars Electronica Festival, the create your world Festival for children and young adults invites all the young and young-at-heart to try something new every September. There is no such thing as right or wrong. It’s more about being curious, open, courageous and yes, disobedient at times and breaking new ground – at the risk of having to take one or the other detour. The fixed point of the create your world Festival is the u19 Exhibit, which presents all of the award-winning projects in the u19 – create your world category of the Prix Ars Electronica. As always, the festival within the festival features an OpenLab in which new technologies, unusual life models or concepts and ideas for the future can be tested to your heart’s content.
