Festival Community Projects

| | |

Throughout its history, Ars Electronica has been continuously working to build a vital community. Over the years, it has expanded into an extensive network of artists, activists, scientists, institutions, policy makers, and other interested parties.

With the introduction of the hybrid festival in 2020, we took the next step in exploring the possibilities of online tools for community building. Still, it is our endeavor to anchor the online component in the real world, so as to find the true potential in bringing together the digital and physical realms. This is why this year we decided to find possibilities to strengthen the community of the hybrid festival even more by getting creative ourselves. It quickly became an internal mission of the team to find projects expressing the networks’ versatility and connectedness.

Our efforts resulted in Community Projects, a concept that intends to bring together partner gardens from all over the world in different events.
