ICT meets the Arts Emilia-Romagna and its “OFF” events, Digitalks, are online events aimed at examining the connections among arts, new technologies, research and the business dimension.

  ICT meets the Arts - Two days of thematic panels, workshops and B2B meetings with experts from both worlds: ICT and Cultural and Creative Industries. Artists, entrepreneurs, researchers, technologists and scholars will discuss the added value that digital solutions and creativity can bring to production processes and will reflect on the social and economic impacts that these interactions can have on the territory, also in the framework of Sustainable Development Goals. 

Digitalks – Open dialogues reflecting on contemporary arts and technological and scientific research that will take place once a month, from October to December 2020. A series of conversations that will involve actors from the regional innovation ecosystem and the most important Italian artists and designers working with new technologies and science applied to visual art, sound and the creation of immersive environments.
