Collaboration with creators experimenting with various media and challenging their boundaries has been a timeless privilege for ADAF, creating new realities and immersive experiences in each edition.

For the 20th anniversary edition, the Athens Digital Arts Festival, titled Techno(s)cene, honors its history while setting the pace for the future of the event.
