Along with IMPAKT, the Culturele Zondagen (“cultural Sundays”) would like to introduce the young e-culture sector in Utrecht. This sounds difficult, but isn’t. We’re not always aware but digital culture has become a part of everyone’s daily life. Learn about trends, projects, backgrounds and the history of digital culture. Organisations, artists and courses in Utrecht will open their doors and present various interesting and important projects about subjects that are relevant to today’s society. You can expect mixed-media installations, virtual reality, interactive games, multimedia performances, surprising lectures and presentations by digital designers, inventors and artists.
