In the late 90’s, Roquigny started to curate browser based and digital art projects at the Webbar, an internet café and art gallery in Paris where she was in charge of the cultural events. In 1999, she joined the CICV Pierre Schaeffer, one of the first French new media art centres where she worked as an artistic curator of the international Urban Multimedia Arts festival. Between the years 2002 and 2004, among other projects, Roquigny organised the first Nuit Blanche in Paris, together with Pierre Bongiovanni. From 2006 to 2016 she co-coordinated the Locus Sonus sound lab at the School of art in Aix en Provence.
