ARTeFACTo 2018 aims at giving greater visibility to artefact creators or interveners, being these theorists or practitioners, establishing a common space for discussion and exchange of new experiences from transdisciplinary humanistic and holistic perspectives, while fostering better understanding of digital arts and culture across a wide spectrum of cultural, disciplinary, and professional practices.
To this end, we cordially invite scholars, teachers, researchers, artists, computer professionals, and others who are working within the broadly defined areas of digital arts, culture and education with specific focus on artefacts / installations to join us in Lisbon.
