The Initiative

The Demoscene, which is born at the heart of the home computer revolution, has been showing how skills and creativity can be stimulated and implemented in a dynamic cultural practice adopted to digital contexts. Many of its techniques and mindsets became core techniques and influences of the digital change, and are still vibrant today. Seven decades after the invention of computers we think it’s time to push for the next step to to take born-digital culture seriously as part of our cultural heritage.
