On 1 February 2018,  a community meet-up was held  at the Transmediale in Berlin. Josephine Bosma, Sanneke Huisman, Jan Robert Leegte and Gaby Wijers were present on behalf of the expert group. Around twenty participants showed up to engage in a lively and interesting discussion that led to important pointers on how to develop a digital art canon. Education, publication and exhibition—creating a digital art sphere—was emphasized, in order to enhance the visibility and understanding of digital artworks. Other steps were also deemed necessary in order to successfully create a canon.
