Hexagram, the network dedicated to research-creation in arts, culture, and technology, is hosting the first edition of its online Interdisciplinary Summit. This web platform, which will provide a creative laboratory for all, was launched on the 15th of September at noon.


The theme of this first edition makes reference to sympoiesis (Haraway, 2016), which is to say the relationship between participants and the sharing and co-extension of their projects—extending from the design of the works to the practical organization of the symposium. The event was initially intended to take place in person over three days in May 2020 and has since been adapted due to the pandemic. Through the digital platform, the hope is to extend typical approaches online by engaging researchers and the public to interact together.

The precarity affecting physical creation spaces, caused by the current situation, demands a much-needed reimagining of the means by which social solidarity can be practiced. Given the spatial constraints inherent in physical distancing, Hexagram's Interdisciplinary Summit will attempt to present a new world filled with innovative online contributions, including other events and projects to be added over the course of the Fall season.

The digital platform created especially for this first edition acts as a full-fledged avenue for research-creation. It will bring together over 20 participants from academia and communities of practice, and audiences will be invited to discover a multitude of innovative approaches. The platform will be comprised of performances, scientific articles, discussions, workshops, presentations, videos, BioArt, photography, games, sounds, and 3D imagery. In line with Hexagram's mandate, the summit itself will constitute an engaging combination of experiments in digital, material, textual and technological research-creation.
