The centre supports the production and dissemination of work by women, trans, non-binary and queer artists. With the goals of making accessible, demystifying, equipping, questioning and creating, Ada X actively participates in the development of a digital democracy. Ada X hosts residencies, workshops, discussions, exhibitions, performances and educational activities. Founded in 1996, Studio XX became Ada X in 2020.
