iMAL aims to support artistic and creative practices using technologies as their medium. We are an Art Centre hosting exhibitions, conferences and performances around arts & cultures in a digital world but also a reflexion centre focused on research and debates around the critical issues of our technological society. Our creative Fablab encourages social inclusion and innovation towards a more sustainable development. With our educational programme, we aim to empower our community and to inspire the next generation to participate in digital culture.
