Since 2001, the Electroni[k] organization has been exploring cross-fields, pushing borders, breaking the rules of artistic propositions and locations to link creations and audience. Electroni[k] focuses on opening emerging cultures to the publics, particularly innovative and multi-disciplinary projects: contemporary art, graphic design, digital art, electronic, contemporary or electro-acoustic music for instance. Every year, Electroni[k] invites various artists for Maintenant festival to present exhibitions, installations, interactive setups, concerts, performances, workshops, conferences… and works with 60 artists or collective from the Rennes area, Brittany but also on a national and international scale.

Maintenant is a hybrid festival, a multi-disciplinary event that links ambitious artistic propositions and curious publics around « Arts, Musics & Technologies ». Maintenant has been thought as a snapshot of the contemporary artistic creation ; a poetic exploration of the city guided by innovative experiences, accessible to everyone in the public space and more than 25 different venues in Rennes.
