Novembre Numérique

  • Monde
01 - 30 November 2020
Across the world, from New Zealand to Colombia, Hong Kong to Togo, Spain to Brazil, Germany to the Comoro Islands, artists, philosophers, gamers, entrepreneurs, creators and makers will explore the digital revolution in all its forms, practices, uses and challenges.

In a very rich programme on five continents, Novembre Numérique will explore new forms of creation: virtual and augmented reality, video games, new narratives, digital art, music and theatre, and will decipher the changes in our societies: gender equality, participatory democracy, transhumanism, robotics, dissemination of knowledge, language and culture. Through workshops, debates, shows, exhibitions, hackathons and escape games, amateurs and experts, both French and foreign, will together decode the 21st century.

Managed by the Institut français and the French cultural network abroad, Novembre Numérique showcases French digital talents and promotes international collaborations with experts from around the world.
