RETHink Art Digital Festival is the first digital art festival realized in Crete, taking place in Rethymno, in Fall 2016.
RETHink Art Digital Festival provides the opportunity for artists from all over the world to showcase their work in the most well known cultural multi-purpose venue of Rethymno, right in the centre of the Old Town, offering the public the chance to come to actual contact with different depictions of modern digital art.
