Le cube, a centre for digital creation

A pioneer in the French digital culture scene, Le Cube is a place of reference for digital art and creation. It’s a space open to everyone – whatever their age, whether their level of digital skills – for discovering, practicing, creating and sharing throughout the year via workshops, courses, exhibitions, shows, conferences and discussions with digital artists and experts.

Le Cube is an initiative created in 2001 by the city of Issy-les-Moulineaux, as the Urban Community of Grand Paris Seine Ouest's centre for digital creation. It is organised and managed by the ART3000 association.

LE CUBE’s many facets
Le Cube is open to all and dedicated to helping people discover, create and exchange throughout the year thanks to training courses, exhibitions, shows, talks & discussions with artists and actors in the field of digital technology.

LEARN ABOUT digital creation
Technology has an influence on how people create and fosters new forms of expression. Le Cube’s programme, which explores digital culture in all its diversity, will allow you to familiarise yourself with everything technology has to offer.

USE multimedia tools
Le Cube has a wide programme of activities that enables people of all ages, with all levels of experience, to learn how to use multimedia tools. Photography, video, website design, blogs, music… Le Cube allows you discover the world of multimedia, and to express your creativity.

CREATE new forms of expression
Le Cube provides support to up-and-coming and renowned artists who use “real-time” technology. As an incubator, it supports projects as they are produced and disseminated, in France and abroad.

EXPERIMENT with digital arts
As a physical entity or on the web, Le Cube takes advantage of any opportunity to share with the public. In particular, it organises Le Cube Festival, a flagship event that allows digital arts to reinvent the city.

DISCUSS the digital society
Le Cube brings together artists, actors in the field of innovation and the general public in order to understand developments in the digital society by setting up debates and conferences. Get to grips with a world in constant evolution…

Le Cube Festival

Every two years, with the help of the Urban Community of Grand Paris Seine Ouest and the town of Issy-les-Moulineaux, Le Cube organises its urban digital arts festival: Le Cube Festival. This flagship cultural event for the digital scene was born out of the desire to showcase new forms of digital creation in an open-air urban context, with a central theme: “urban futures”.
