MUTEK Arab Emirates is a festival with a platform that promotes and shares cutting-edge ideas in sound and digital arts. Launched in 2017, MUTEK.AE is now preparing for its 3rd edition in 2024, in collaboration with AlSerkal Avenue and Dubai Economy and Tourism.

MUTEK.AE has become a vital force for advanced artists and audiences interested in digital creativity in the Arab region. As a member of the Global MUTEK Network, which originated in Montreal in 1999, MUTEK.AE is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of artistic expression and connecting artists, audiences, and urban spaces through the limitless possibilities of sound and digital arts.

Each edition, called Micro MUTEK, represents a quest to discover new ways of bringing together artists, audiences, and urban environments, fostering a spirit of experimentation and establishing MUTEK.AE as a symbol of creative dynamism in the region. By doing so, we solidify the Arab Emirates as a crucial hub for innovators from around the world.
