On the official website the festival writes:

CLICK Festival focuses on new media art. Often new media is regarded as reserved for the chosen few; however in real life it is available and relevant to us all. The primary purpose of CLICK Festival is to create an open and inclusive platform in which the curious is immersed in this unique and groundbreaking art form through workshops, exhibitions, lectures, and extraordinary concert events. New media art has vast potential and at CLICK creativity, knowledge and visions are shared freely.

This years festival theme is ‘the eye, the ear, the hand and the heart’ interpreted through the principals of D.I.T. – Do It Together. D.I.T. can be seen as an expansion of D.I.Y. – the Do It Yourself movement with its open source and collaborative art.
