This strong mobilization demonstrates the commitment of the Institut français and the French cultural network abroad to promote the access for all to new technologies, to promote the diversity of French digital creation, and to build lasting partnerships with foreign professionals.

The events organized in the establishments of the cultural network or those of its partners, in situ or online, make it possible to highlight French innovation in the field of digital creation – virtual and augmented reality, video games, new narratives, art digital, audiovisual performances, immersive theater, etc. – and report on the digital transformation of network establishments.
