Founded in 1996, the Society for Arts and Technology [SAT] is a non-profit organization recognized internationally for its active, leading role in developing immersive technologies, virtual reality and creative use of high-speed networks. With its double mission as a centre for the arts and research, SAT was created to support a new generation of creators/researchers in the digital age.
A gathering place for diverse intelligence, curiosity, knowledge and talent, the Society for Arts and Technology is a live creative laboratory whose unconventional experiences bring together the tangible and the unexpected.
Within its 4 400m2 premises one can find the Satosphere, a permanent modular dome, dedicated to the development and presentation of 360° immersive experiences. With a diameter of 18 meters and height of 13 meters, filled with 157 speakers, this unique equipment complements the studios and workshops housed inside the SAT.
The SAT has in a natural process become a space for pivotal events, where everything is possible, at once stimulating and showcasing trends in technology applied to arts and design.
SAT has an organizational model that has led it to be the first North American member to be invited to join the Open Living Labs (ENoLL) network, a European initiative regrouping more than 170 research and innovation centres all over the world, demonstrating how its activities impact social and economical spheres.
The training center of the Society for Arts and Technology, Campus SAT, offers creative video art workshops in front of the old fire station in Old Longueuil.
The proposed activities are for young people as well as for adults and will take place between 19H and 23H. For this event, Campus SAT offers 2 digital art workshops, VJing and other stop-motion animation activities.
