Founded in 2005 and based in Geneva, the Mapping Festival is a multidisciplinary festival dedicated to digital arts. Every year, it offers a range of events and activities that highlight the artistic potential of new technologies. Each edition is an opportunity to present a bold selection of audiovisual performances, installations and architectural projections. In addition there are conferences and round tables, workshops and masterclasses as well as an electronic music program.
Offering a unique broadcasting context in Switzerland, the Mapping Festival is now recognized as a key event in the digital art world and a true international reference. The general interest in, and the omnipresence of, new technologies is making an important contribution every year to expanding and diversifying festival audiences - locally and internationally. The questions raised during the festival concern today a growing number of people, whether familiar or not with the technological aspect. The Mapping Festival is thus recognized for its enhancement of the digital artistic avant-garde. Through specialized programming, but always accessible.
The festival is now a major event in the fields of image generation, technological creation and exploration, attracting both professional and general audience. Considered as a unique platform of production and diffusion in Switzerland, it also enjoys an international reputation thanks to the quality of its programming and diversity, which aims to encourage emerging artists of the field. It alternates audio-visual performances, installations, clubbing, architectural mapping, as well as workshops and conferences.
The Mapping Festival is also a meeting point, a creative and collaborative platform with innovative spirit. Over the course of thirteen editions the Mapping Festival has grown steadily and emerged as one the most important events of its kind in Europe.
