Digital Thursday

(c) Pierre Buttin

Technologies reshape the way we create, fund, and access artistic experiences. Digital Thursday is a newsletter and a series of online events to gather artists, producers, and experts in interactive and immersive experiences.

Once a month, take a deep dive into the world of French digital creation. What can you expect from our events and newsletters? Discover new video games, podcasts, immersive experiences, and artworks both IRL and online. Go “behind the screen” to learn more about these digital experiences with exclusive interviews featuring artists, producers, directors, and more. Plus, get updates on the latest news and opportunities to immerse yourself in the French creative ecosystem!

Designed as a platform to connect French and US ecosystems, online talks are generally followed by meet-ups with professionals from both sides of the Atlantic (open to everyone interested or by invitation only)! Events are co-produced by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy along with its partners. Find below the past and next events!
