Digital Democracies run by Threshold Studios brings together three UK festivals – Frequency Festival Lincoln, Freedom Festival Hull and Brighton Digital Festival – with a network of associate partners and collaborators across the UK in a programme exploring technology-enabled art in public spaces.
The aim of the project is to create a new generation of radically inclusive public cultural experiences and bridge in shared places where we live, work and play.
Festivals-led, the project brings together expertise across art in the public realm, digital innovation, social impact and place-based partnerships with global industry networks and national audiences.
