Technarte is a Conference where international artists and technologists show the most innovative artistic disciplines that use the technology as means of creation. This union between Art and Technology generates new recognised fields, like Nano-art, 3D Printing, interactive installations, Art & Robotics, Bio-art, immersive 3D development, Mobile Art, smart materials and hyper-augmented reality, among others.
The main goal of Technarte is to present the technological developments which facilitate the full expression of the modern art, and to be a forum of discussion and reflection around the existent convergence between art and technology. The cutting-edge technological innovations provide infinitive possibilities for the artist, and the technological society uses the creativity of the artists as a way of inspiration for new technological projects.

From the beginning, Technarte has shown the most innovative artistic disciplines that use technology as the main tool for creation. Due to this fusion between art, science and technology we know more about the present and future trends in art, such as Wearable Tech, Robotic Art, Bioart, Nanoart, Interactive Architecture, Big Data Art, Human Computer Interaction, 3D Scanning and Printing and much more. The latest technological developments are used by the artists to revolutionise the way that the citizenship take interest in Art.
During two days, artists and technologists from all around the world will meet again in Bilbao to share their own vision of the fusion between art, science and technology. Technarte speakers team is formed annually by international artists that have been awarded in many important festivals and that have been programming exhibitions around the world. Since 2006 more than 150 artists have been taking part in the International Conference on Art and Technology in Bilbao and in Los Angeles.
During the International Conference on Art and Technology we also promote the connection between speakers, attendees, and eventual sponsors. One of the most important aspects for us during Technarte is to offer the possibility to enjoy inspiring networking days with international artists and professionals from technology world. The social events during the Conference is where artists and attendees chat together about new ideas, interesting projects and share their own vision of the future in the fusion between art and technology. Relaxing moments that complement the interesting artistic and technological presentations.
The day before to the beginning of the Conference we organize a warming up with the speakers. The goal is to create a connected team with the speakers and to enjoy a friendly hours before the Conference. Visiting a Museum, a city tour or a informal dinner are good plans for a nice day before.
Time for coffee breaks during the conference, informal lunchs and the official dinner with speakers and attendees.
In Technarte we are aware of the importance of creating a wide net with artists and professionals of culture, art and technology, not only for us, but for the speakers and attendees as well. Because of this, during the two conference days, we schedule different moments for networking between attendees and speakers during which they may approach each other both informally and professionally.
A lot of new ideas and projects arise during networking moments in Technarte, creating a great platform of artistic and technological opportunities.
You will be able to keep in contact with some of the most important international artists who use innovative technology.
