Several venues of the city are going to be involved: the festival is starting on Thursaday 1st May 2015, at the Input Club, then continuing on Saturday 2nd May 2015, in the Usina del Arte and in the Moscow Club, location hosting the official after-show event. On the third and last day, Sunday 3rd May 2015, the festival will be once again at Usina Del Arte, beating heart of the ongoing events, where several international contents, related to other sections, will find room along with the music programme: visual arts, film screenings and workshops.
roBOtBA has been planned and carried out by the Shape association, in collaboration with the Municipality of Bologna and Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna Representación en la Republica Argentina, and it has been produced thanks to the strong synergy between the two cities and their own Universities.
The real protagonists will be the several modules, distinguishing the Italian edition of the festival, rerun during the international rich calendar of events taking place in Argentina: more than 25 proposals, involving several artists and subjects, coming from the international scene of digital arts; 14 music projects offering live performances and dj-sets; 10 works selected by the international call4roBOt; 1 national premiere screening for Argentina, 3 occasions for focus activities, based on talks, workshops; and also roBOtKids, the festival section dedicated to children.
