New opportunities ı New realities

The digital sphere, the Web and the Internet have been highly changing our ways of communicating and consuming for two decades.
New codes and a new, exponential, social, informative, augmented, scenarised, shortened, multifaceted language have arisen, as well as new concepts such as web creation (web documentaries, web series), augmented reality, interactive storytelling, live fiction, filmed radio, 360° TV, transmedia.

Social networks, tablets, new screens, interactivity, immediacy, new ways of telling, showing, filming, producing and directing urge Artistic Schools to explore new ways of learning. The Institut des Arts de Diffusion invites you to join them in this thinking process on 28th and 29th March 2019.
