With the collaboration of Iklectik Art Lab, SEF will set for many days as an experiment that shows an exhibition, workshops and concerts.

The Festival collaborates with Chalton Gallery to present a new media art exhibition, with interactive works, AV installations and the technologies such as PD, Bela, and the use of open software.

SEF also counts with the participation of POPklik, a London based collective in charge of the creative visual communication of the festival.

SEF is curated by Laura Netz, curator, artist, and director of EAM elektronische-art-and-music, a curatorial agency and record label, altogether with a network of collaborators and artists who support and facilitate the event.
