and architects. Pixelache focuses especially in presenting activities
of various international grassroot networks and communities such
as the VJ community, media activists, the open source community
and the demoscene.The goal of Pixelache festival is to act as
a bridge between the traditional creative disciplines and rapidly
developing electronic subcultures.
