Welcome to the Aalto Digital Creatives Art & Tech Gala. In this event, the Art & Tech Open Call winners from 2020-2022 showcase their projects in on-stage presentations and off-stage demos.

The annual Art & Tech Open Call offers audiovisual, design, gaming and other cutting-edge projects an opportunity to apply for development funding and a chance to use Aalto Studios’ state-of-the art production facilities. In this hybrid gala event, the winning teams of 2020-2022 showcase their projects and how they have utilised the support from Aalto University.
