ABOUT THE EVENT

November Electrónico is the main event for digital and electronic culture in the City of Buenos Aires, which crosses art and science with the alternative world of video games, virtual and augmented reality, and electronic and expanded music.

In this ninth edition, more than 200 artists, developers, researchers and scientists will propose workshops, exhibitions, concerts, workshops, performances, keynote talks, conferences, screenings and many more experiences.

All activities are free and those of a virtual nature will be available at www.noviembreelectronico.elculturalsanmartin.org and at Vivamos Cultura.

Each Electronic November is a path towards the convergence between culture, science and technology, which expresses the innovative identity of El Cultural San Martín and explores the construction of new audiences.

Since 2012, more than 130 thousand visitors have shared samples, workshops, performances and all kinds of interactive activities, with virtual and augmented reality, electronic music, visualizations and mapping, robots, video games, digital and 3D manufacturing, drones and programming languages.
