In 2016 the museum «Maison d’Ailleurs» initiated the transdisciplinary festival «Numerik Games» in Yverdon-les-Bains, a festival of digital culture featuring personalities from culture, technology, education and tourism. Digital, participative performances and exhibitions are presented in public spaces and master classes are offered.
Pro Helvetia is backing the project for two years (2016 – 2018) to help consolidate the festival locally, to raise its profile at national level, and to enhance the standing of digital culture in the French-speaking part of Switzerland.
For the third edition (2018) the festival entered into a partnership with the Zurich Game Festival «Ludicious». Further collaborations are being planned with the Zurich University of the Arts, the «International Gaming Show» in Lausanne and the «Lausanne Lumières» festival.
