Distinguishing itself in a milieu saturated with conferences concerned with new technologies and creative industries, Forum IMG tackles artistic practice, theoretical work and industry issues with a lens on leading-edge artists, ethics, cultural implications and innovative business operations. With the themes broadly linked to imagining our digital futures, the forum examines a range of arts intersecting with technology and how they affect social, political and lived experiences.

For professionals, practitioners, creative companies and the curious alike, three days of keynotes, panels and masterclasses take place across multiple spaces in the state-of-the-art facilities of 7 Fingers Studios, Tuesday, August 20 and running through Thursday, August 22. Many high-profile international creators and professionals are among more than 60 participating speakers and highlight the richness of the local Montréal scene.
