KAWENGA

Main Missions

Aims

To explore new modes of writing and attitudes to sensitivity. To report on new dynamics in learning, creation and cooperation. To encourage and participate in the constitution of a digital culture. To promote artistic creation and freeware in order to act in the public realm and create common property. To encourage inter-mediation of the actors of innovation (universities, schools, artists, researchers, businesses, theorists). To contribute to the information society in an active and knowledgeable way. To circulate into Internet networks as if they were new, public spaces. Kawenga Digital Territories is a regional venue for experimentation in digital arts and cultures as well as a media lab dedicated to initiation, training, mediation, support for the creation and diffusion of digital art. It is a propitious place for questioning people’s role and position in a society that is investing massively in information and communication technologies. Kawenga explores these new territories with different groups: artists, researchers, students, amateurs, enthusiasts, associations, youth etc. in order to enable each one to discover, explore, occupy and invent across the vast digital territories.
