This first round table will give participants the chance to question the place of the media arts in the symbolic construction of a city.
How can the media arts become one of a city’s hallmarks?
How can they be used to enhance a city’s appeal while creating a strong sense of belonging amongst its citizens by promoting the image of an outward-looking, inventive and dynamic city that owes its diversity and its youthfulness to its creativity?
We will broach these questions in the company of elected officials who have chosen to invest in the media arts in their cities and directors of festivals and cultural establishments that lead digital art projects in public spaces at the national and international level.

Inspired by the Grand Paris initiative, which has placed train stations at the heart of its regional development plan, and based on numerous examples of international train station renovation projects, the objective of this round table is to imagine the train station of tomorrow and the role the media arts can play in this transformation.
How can we turn train stations, places more inclined to existence than experience, into social places open to the rest of the city and the world, by developing new uses and artistic practices in them and their surrounding neighbourhoods?
To do this, we will adopt a comparative and analytical approach by focusing on the shared and divergent aspects of each experience discussed during this round table.
