This entails many great events such as workshops, symposia, presentations, tours and exhibitions, and a partnership with the Amsterdam Light Festival. There are plenty of ways of getting engaged and consequently many different calls that might be of your interest

The theme of 2020 edition is #Futures Implied, which opens up investigations into future scenarios implied in today's urban technologies like digital platforms and smart city technologies. How can we shape technologies to respond to their surroundings, contributing to cities that are both socially and ecologically sustainable? The point of departure is that technologies are never neutral enablers, they are built upon numerous spoken and unspoken assumptions about urban life, each with their own implications for both social relations as well as their effect on the natural ecosystem.
