Kunstverkene som produseres av deltakerne vil bli en del av utstillingen Piksel Kids under Pikselfestivalen, 2015.

CITY WATER!
Er du nysgjerrig på vann og klima? Hva betyr det at vannet er sunt eller usunt, og hva trengs i vannet for at dyr og organismer skal kunne leve i det?

Vi drar til sjøen i Bergen og tester hvordan det går med vannet der. Bli med, og vær en miljøbiolog for to dager!

With the exhibition and meeting series Utopies Monétaires Internationales (International

DRIFT, another
main spot of the festival, invites four creative « turntablists » for
crossed performances : eRikm, Arnaud Rivière, Martin Tétreault, DJ

In the Transmissions
performances event, the artists play with different radio wavelenghts and
signals. The DIY Music

Electronics. And with I-R-L event,
the latest audivisual experiences are put to the test.
