KIBLIX 2011 Educational Program - festival as a lab - will have a strong focus on education, hands-on making, collaboration and sharing of knowledge. The educational program is, on one side, addressing emerging artists to participate in professional / advanced workshops and exhibiting the outputs during the festival, and on the other side is reaching out to the public and the youth with various mini-workshops on creative and playful technology&art projects.
KIBLIX 2011 Festival - festival as a cultural performance - aims to be a platform where artists, who are hungry to know what researchers are doing and thinking, and researchers, jealous to know of artistic experimentation come together to explore, discuss and share their ideas.
Partner Festival MFRU will happen at the same time also in Maribor. With its long tradition as an international computer arts festival they invited an interesting program of a/v performances, in collaboration with Optofonica (NL) and will have various Slovenian artists exhibiting and giving presentations.
