This second edition offers a platform to provoke its participants to think beyond the existing frameworks, change perspective and shape new ones during a dialogue and collective research with people working in a diversity of geographical, social, and cultural backgrounds. ​

  • Information or best practice exchanges, peer to peer exchange as well as experts’ presentations; 
  • Inspiration and introduction of tools from the digital world; 
  • Knowledge development from the field to be shared with a broader community. 

In addition to the thorough exchange of knowledge, best practices (and failed attempts) with peers and experts in the field of communication, participants will work on toolkits on accessibility and the use of technology to improve the festival experience.

This edition of the Digital (R)Evolution atelier will happen entirely online due to current circumstances.
