MeltingCode is a festival that aims to spread the knowledge and understanding of digital and electronic culture, in other terms the actual mix between Arts, Science and Technologies.

More and more used by contemporary shapes of live performing arts, these "new" technologies make us dream and sometimes question us. How are they really used ? By who, and what for ? MeltingCode offers to decode these practices connecting notions such as real-time, hacking, electronic and programming languages, in order to give people a better understanding of the wide universe of Digital Arts.

The festival, consisting of a series of conferences, workshops, live shows and exhibitions, will thus allow various approaches of these topics through cultural mediation, scientific popularization, pedagogy and creation.

One clear goal of this series of events is to help this kind of activities grow at local level, by involving the protagonists of digital creation  as much as possible in the CUB (Urban Community of Bordeaux), while also exposing them to national and international levels.

Keywords : real-time, interactivity, multimedia, digital art, electronic, net-art, do-it-yourself
