In informatics the “kernel” is the core of an operating system.

Similarly, Kernel Festival aims to be a permanent and stable platform on which engage and organize series of activities to promote the meeting and exchange among different contemporary artistic languages.
Multiple events, as enzymes, catalyze processes of active involvement to offer young talents and established professional artists an arena for exchange, growth, involvement and visibility in the artistic, cultural and industrial contemporary panorama, at regional and international level.

By presenting a rich program of performances, exhibitions, conferences and workshops, Kernel does not want to be just a moment of pure and simple entertainment, but also a meeting place and an opportunity for young artists. Through open calls and internatonal committees, composed of well-kown professionals, young talents will have the possibility to be selected to perform and present their project.
The historical and cultural architectural heritage, particularly rich in our region, is given new meaning, representing an ideal laboratory for experimenting, sharing and mixing different experiences.

The festival aimes to be a new multi-disciplinary link between electronic sound and music, digital and interactive art, audiovisual mapping and temporary architecture. An event that gets together renowned artists and emerging young talents in an open platform, to create a contamination between different artistic languages and historical location full of charm.
