Electrodome was founded by curator/artist Idun to provide a space for game culture and digital art as those forms are often discriminated by Swedish culture funds and institutions. This concept is planned to be a permanent venue and lab for electronic and interactive arts, as well as yearly festivals (including crossmedia, transmedia, experience design art). In the long term this might also be connected with an international artist residency opportunity that is currently being held on a smaller scale through Playcentric Industries & Institute and Collaboratory.
Electrodome mainly has its base in a new container gallery, Epic Unidragon, in the centre of Gothenburg, but works globally and the gallery will probably move to another city by the end of 2016.
