The specificity of digital arts, through the use and questioning of new technologies, leads us to be all the more vigilant about the environmental crisis. Technologies are not neutral and have a profound impact on our ecosystems, and we believe that artists are best placed to explore these themes in their thinking and practice.

Concerned by these issues, particularly within the HACNUM network, we pay particular attention to projects that take this ecological dimension into account in the selection of works that we accompany into production, both in terms of the materials used in their design and their energy consumption.

While this won’t be an exclusive criterion, it will at any rate be a major asset that we’ll be focusing on when making our choice.

Eco-responsibility can take many forms in the production and distribution of digital artworks. We think it’s important to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels in projects, to rely on local players for raw materials, and to have a distribution plan that allows works to have a longer lifespan with more environmentally-friendly travel logics.
It’s difficult to express all our thoughts on the subject in just a few lines, and we’re not the only ones thinking and acting on these issues, which is why we also refer you to the excellent work of conference of our partners now, ScopitoneOblique/s and Electroni[k] and to resources developed by Hacnum members on the environmental impact of a digital artwork.


CHRONIQUES has been committed to supporting under-represented artists for over ten years.

In previous editions, an average of 65% of the proposals we received were from men. To reduce this gap for this 4th edition, we will be careful to respect total parity in all calls for projects, without exception.

We are well aware of the difficulties involved in fulfilling the representative missions we have set ourselves. The answers we have given them may be incomplete or divisive, but we accept this attempt, while remaining attentive to the needs of artists and professionals in our sector, in order to improve and move forward together towards a culture that is more inclusive and representative of society in all its diversity.
