Digital Culture in NRW

APRIL 19-21, 2016

FROM ARTS TO VIDEO GAMES

NOVEMBER 3-5, 2016

 

From April 19th to 21st a group of Dutch experts visited NRW, followed by a group of Belgian experts who came to our region from November 3rd to 5th.

The guests were introduced to important protagonists who are active in this field and visited landmark institutions of ‘Digital Culture’ in NRW – including the Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV), the European Centre for Creative Economy (ECCE) in Dortmund, the Cologne Game Lab, the Inter Media Art Institute (IMAI) in Düsseldorf or the Academy for Media Arts in Cologne.

The context for the second trip was the ‘Next Level – Festival for Games’ in Düsseldorf. Particularly the roundtable discussion during both trips offered a forum for intensive discussions and fresh network-building.
