Welcome to Art & Tech Days, the festival where art, design, technology and science converge to explore the theme of Augmented Humanity. How can we use technology to enhance our creativity, expression, and communication? How can we challenge the boundaries between human and machine, physical and virtual, individual and collective? This year, we are thrilled to present you a rich and diverse program of conferences, workshops, performances and exhibitions that will challenge your perception of reality and inspire your imagination.
Art & Tech Days is brought to you by Creative Industry Košice powered by EIT Culture & Creativity, a network of innovators and visionaries who are passionate about fostering cultural and creative industries in Europe. Together, we aim to create a platform for dialogue, collaboration and experimentation among artists, designers, technologists and scientists from different disciplines and backgrounds.
From 16th to 20th October 2023, you are invited to join us in Košice, a vibrant city that has been recognized as a European Capital of Culture and a UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts. Here, you will have the opportunity to experience the latest trends and innovations in art and tech, as well as to interact with some of the most influential thinkers and makers in the field.
Art & Tech Days isn’t just about deep dialogue and insightful discussions. It’s also about experiencing the transformational power of art and tech through our various exhibitions and performances. Whether you are interested in immersive storytelling, interactive installations, digital art, artificial intelligence or any other aspect of Augmented Humanity, you will find something that will spark your curiosity and creativity. Don’t miss this unique chance to be part of Art & Tech Days, the festival that celebrates the fusion of art and tech as a catalyst for positive change.
