Montreal Digital Spring (Printemps numérique) is a non-profit organization whose primary mission is to boost digital intelligence through various activities of event productions, communication, curation, networking, and mediation with 3 sections: general public, professional and youth.
Since 2014, its flagship event – the Printemps numérique (digital spring) – was held annually in Montreal from March 21 to June 21. This season is both a space for networking between the arts, industry, education and research sectors and a showcase of their productions.
The diverse programming of Montreal Digital Spring makes digital arts more accessible to a larger audience while attracting an international clientele. Throughout the year, the organization is establishing itself in the various digital sectors by organizing forums and events that foster conversations around digital trends and issues of digital transformations.
