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.
Visits to the exhibition are possible from 19h-22h
