Since 2007, the International Marketplace for Digital Art (MIAN) has been ELEKTRA’s professional gathering. MIAN hosts major international players from the digital scene to stimulate our artists’ outreach and foster new collaborations. These encounters are held each year as part of ELEKTRA festival. They take the form of short presentations during which international guests, whether curators, presenters, describe their activities, and artists and organizations share the work and projects they would like to promote abroad.
In addition to attending ELEKTRA’s artistic activities, MIAN guests participate in a series of visits to Montreal's top cultural sites: research and creative laboratories, artists' studios, museums and galleries in addition to the main centres of digital art in Montreal.
