    E-Fest : Digital Culture Festival

    A festival dedicated to the digital culture in the Arab world, E-Fest is kicking off its eleventh edition with an original and innovative program recognized by institutional partners and the general publicalike. The diversity of its actions underlines a cross-disciplinary approach bringing together creativity, reflection and learning with a view to fostering the emergence of new talents.

    Thanks to digital technologies, the festival aims to open new possibilities for artistic creation, bring the arts to public spaces, and to showcase the diversity of live performance through bringing together artists from around the world. Through the organization of workshops focused on cultural entrepreneurship opportunities ; and the organization of a series of electronic music concerts, the festival aims to strengthen the professionalization and the participation of youth in the field of art and culture.

    Seeking to promote artistic creativity, and supporting projects promoting international cooperation and young artists, the IFPC is cofounding “E-Fest : Digital Culture Festival”, under the 2015 IFPC Call for proposals.
