Discover the SAT

House of Technological Arts since 1996

In the heart of Montreal, the SAT is a unique place that offers the public immersive experiences in its famous dome, but also concerts, workshops, conferences, exhibitions… Hundreds of events are presented there every year.

Founded in 1996, the Society for Arts and Technology [SAT] is a non-profit organization dedicated to digital culture. With its triple mission as a center for the arts, training and research, the SAT is a gathering space for diverse talent, curiosity, and knowledge. It is recognized internationally for its active, leading role in developing technologies for immersive creation, mixed realities and telepresence. The Society for Arts and Technology is a place of collective learning that holds the promise of exploring technology to infuse it with more meaning, magic and humanity.

Discover the SAT

Since its creation in 1996, the SAT has been dedicated to the development of digital culture. It is the only place in Montreal (and probably in the world) to bring together under one roof an immersive theater (Satosphere), a research laboratory, a training center, a venue, a café and a restaurant.



The Satosphere is the first immersive theater dedicated to artistic creation. It forms a spherical projection screen that invites artists to explore new conceptual territories. With its dome 18 meters in diameter and 13 meters high, its 8 video projectors and its 157 loudspeakers, the Satosphere places the public at the heart of the audiovisual experience.

Metalab is the research and development laboratory of the SAT. Its mission is twofold: to stimulate the emergence of innovative immersive experiences and to make their design accessible to immersion artists through an ecosystem of open-source software.
