March 15, 2016 Montréal’s Digital Spring foregrounds the undeniable quality and diversity of the city’s digital arts scene. Showcasing creativity across the disciplines of science, industry, and art, it further strengthens the city’s position as one of the world's leading capitals in the field.

Hailed by some as the Montréal digital version of the Venice Biennale, the event serves to raise visibility of local artists and democratize emerging practices by engaging citizens in participatory activities. Some 150 rendezvous (both paid and free-of-charge) are planned across the city. For the occasion, MUTEK, the internationally renowned festival of digital creativity and electronic music, will present, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Montréal and the Phi Centre, MUTEK_IMG, a forum that emphasizes visuality in the digital creation milieu and rallies both artists and professionals. Other organizations and festivals involved include the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Society for Arts and Technology (SAT), C2-MTL, TechnoMontréal, the Festival TransAmériques and the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA).

Running from March 21 to June 21, this digital season is the ideal platform for creators and pioneers to connect in the continually evolving sphere of digital creativity.
