Origin
Early in 2006 the founders of the NetNiet.org Foundation got together with the intent of organising an exhibition about net.art that took place in the streets instead on on the internet.  Our name refers to this idea that this was “not about the net”, but that we wanted to look at the cultural implications of merging of technology and physical, public space. The idea soon grew into the Wireless Festival 2006. After the festival we kept exploring.

Funding
The NetNiet.org foundation has never received direct cultural funding. Instead, we work for and with other institutions. Fort example, we often give lectures, or re-install our projects for a small fee. The money we make flows back into our projects and the services we offer.
