The MUTEK Forum App will remain open for scheduling virtual (and physical) meetings until September 9, with an emphasis on the festival week, August 23th to 28th from 9AM to 10PM Montréal time.

In-person activities

In-person activities feature daily networking lunches (12h - 13h EST) and cocktails (17h - 19h EST) at Agora du Cœur des sciences, as part of the MUTEK Forum activities running from August 23rd to 26th. These daily activities present the best way to mingle and connect with visiting industry professionals, the artistic community, and our Forum audience.

Taking place on Thursday, August 25th, at the Espace ONF, MUTEK Match has become an essential component of MUTEK’s daytime program. This exclusive networking event for international and Canadian cultural organizations in the field of digital art, culture and electronic music centers on making connections. The goal is to make connections between targeted international professionals (buyers) and Canadian artists through market-oriented activities such as short public presentations, 1on1 meetings, the traditional festival opening cocktail, and our industry brunch.
