Welcome to the DigiArts portal.
DigiArts is a reference website on art, science and technology and more particularly on media arts and electronic music. It resulted from a period of 6 years’ (2002-2007) activity undertaken by a team of interdisciplinary professionals working in different UNESCO programmes (culture, communication, science, education, etc.) based in various parts of the world, in conjunction with a range of outstanding national and international experts.
The portal contents could be categorized in four major chapters:
1. Information on the history of media art and electronic music as well as a collection of pioneer artists’ bios, coming mostly from Asia, Africa, Arab States and Latin America (Media art and Music using technology);
2. A network of specialized institutions dealing with research, training, creativity and promotion of digital art and music, classified by geo-cultural regions (Regional networking);
3. Articles, essays, course contents in different fields related to Digital creativity, open-source software tutorials, as well as other teaching material (Training); and
4. Professional and non-professional digital productions by young people (UNESCO Digital Arts Award and Young Digital Creators).
The contents and resources posted in this portal are quite consequent; it also contains a large number of links to our partners’ websites and works. We wish therefore to inform the users in advance that some links might be broken and apologize for the inconvenience that this situation may have for their own work.
We take the opportunity to thank all our partners warmly for their support and cooperation in achieving the main objective of the DigiArts project: to promote North-South collaboration and share information and knowledge on the use of new technology in the artistic field.
Enjoy your visit to DigiArts.
