In a network of international partners, the NODE association creates opportunities for open exchange on current developments at the intersection of design, arts and technology. With organizations of special expertise (e.g. Motion Bank), we co-initiate think tanks and laboratories. We create formats for international exchange and residencies within a network of international partner festivals and with institutions like the Goethe Institut. Through formats such as NODE+CODE lectures, we encourage the creation of an ongoing debate on digital and media arts practices in Frankfurt and the region of Rhine-Main. In collaboration with local universities and cultural organizations, we invite inspirational artists to share their knowledge and challenges with local artists, students and an interested public.
