The venue of this event is located in the center of Osaka and it is a complex facility and incubation center for advanced technology and innovation. The Lab. in the Knowledge capital consists of open experimental laboratories used by industries and universities and the venue functions as a unique intersection where general visitors, industries, universities and creators meet.

Each month during the Ars Electronica Creative Cloud, three days are filled with talks and workshops. On the first day an artist and an Ars Electronica member hold the Cloud Talk. The talks will provide in-depth insight into many interesting topics on the cutting-edge of art, technology and society. Artists fill the second and third day with workshops. Every workshop is based on creative expression, exploration and activity, all shaped by the unique experience and vision of the respective artist. On the second day a member of Ars Electronica will present the latest projects and news, offering the community in Osaka insight into the creative processes in Linz. Through these workshops, the program aims to stimulate social discussion and action for new creativity based in the Knowledge Capital Osaka.
