This new edition of the festival gathers 25 artists, designers and technologists for a weekend of free workshops, talks and demonstrations that explore a range of themes at the intersection of art, design and technology.

The programme this year presents a series of interactive exhibits enabling visitors to connect through messages of hope, dig deep to reveal their inner strength or to get creative with multi-sensory fashion experiences. The festival also invites visitors to explore new creative territories uncovered by artificial intelligence through playful experiments that examine issues of trust, bias, and identity. Finally, with the backdrop of the climate crisis, a special showcase asks visitors to reimagine their relationship to nature and to connect with non-human and multispecies ecosystems.

Events are free and drop-in, but places for some are limited, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment. Most events are suitable for all ages.
