The DIGITAL ART WEEKS programme is concerned with the application of digital technology in the arts. Consisting of symposia, workshops and performances, the Digital Art Weeks programme offers insight into current research and innovations in art and technology as well as illustrates resulting synergies in an exhibition and a series of performances during the Festival each year, making artists aware of impulses in technology and scientists aware of the possibilities of application of technology in the arts.

Similar to the DAW10 Project in 2008 that was conceived and realized by the group for the ETH in partnership with swisnex Shanghai, the DAW10 project was held in Xi’an and continued the focus on innovation in the presentation of scientific and artistic research within the context of cultural exchange with the goal of mutual enrichment and knowledge transfer. The transdisciplinary approach that has been taken by the Digital Art Weeks group over the years is evident in the programming of the events and in Xian it formed a solid basis for collaborative art and research, and provides multiple and mutual benefits for all partners involved. The educational settings in which the events took place were of interest not only in the areas of arts and science but also in areas of educational exchange and activity.
