From a festival organization to an international platform for trans-disciplinary creativity: ever since the launch of its first edition in 2005, TodaysArt has been bringing artists, thinkers, and audiences together in an ever-changing, yet inspiring setting.
Inspired by relevant political and artistic topics, TodaysArt aspires to promote and foster innovation and creativity as well as public interest for current developments within arts, culture, and society.
The network specializes in the presentation and development of emerging digital culture and contemporary visual and performing arts. By doing so, TodaysArt connects local and international talent to established creators and pioneers to collectively explore new possibilities and forms of expression.
The festival is known for its surprising settings: every year, the festival travels through the city of The Hague before temporarily finding its niche in a wide array of unconventional public spaces and venues.
Over the past thirteen years, TodaysArt has built up an impressive international profile by presenting and producing works that are developed in collaboration with some of today’s leading creators. TodaysArt’s key activity is the annual TodaysArt festival in The Hague. Besides this, the network organizes and participates in a variety of international events, exhibitions, and acts as a co-producer for the development and distribution of artists and projects in The Netherlands as well as abroad.

Transmediale is a Berlin-based festival and year-round project that draws out new connections between art, culture, and technology. It considers technology as being more than the digital world and the cultural as being more than what emerges from within institutionalized fields of production.
The formats of the festival change from year to year as Transmediale tries to foreground the intrinsic link between transdisciplinary thinking and cultural practice.
The 31st edition of the festival, directed by Kristoffer Gansing for the seventh time, aims to take stock of current affairs in order to understand if and how things could be different. Its participants will seek possible new ways of resisting and deconstructing the alarming development of digital populism, the radicalization of net culture, and the new culture wars.
(Post)digital culture today seems to support hate-mongering, racist and neo-colonial powers rather than provide an emancipatory alternative. Transmediale is therefore actively seeking out self-critical discussions of topics otherwise rarely addressed at digital culture events—such as contemporary imbalances of class, gender, and race—within a variety of curatorial formats and modes of knowledge exchange.

Mixtur has been founded in Barcelona in 2012 with the aim of contributing to the process of creating, teaching and more extensively distributing contemporary music and sound art intertwined with the science of sound itself and the creative arts.
The Festival Mixtur wants to establish itself as a meeting point of musicians and other artists whose work focuses on research; and the public, including those who have a background in new music as well as those who do not and to whom this area of artistic expression is a new experience. They seek out artists who consider risk as an inherent aspect of their work. Mixtur wants to be an avenue for the Spanish and International public to discover and experience this art form in an environment that allows and encourages exchange and discussion.
It is their conviction that curiosity, discovery and the opportunity to learn are fundamentals in approaching unknown and novel ways of musical expression, for both professional musicians and the public. Mixtur wants to extend their educational offers to musicians who may otherwise not have access to such possibilities. For this purpose, they include several and diverse workshops with some institutions. Also, one of the main activities of the festival is a Workshop on composition and sound experimentation led by composers of international renown.
The ultimate goal of the Festival Mixtur is to promote the creative process itself by commissioning new works to recognized artists and also to young artists who, after completing their studies, find themselves at the very beginning of their career. This is a consequence of the strong commitment of the festival with new ways of contemporary creation.
