Core projects

Digital Democracies is a national project exploring the intersection of technology and public space. The project brings together partners from across the UK – civic, cultural, HE and tech sectors with artists to explore new experiences in our shared public social spaces – real world and online- where we live, work, visit and play.

We’re proud to be a commissioning partner of Global Streets, a national programme that is inspiring local change through unforgettable international outdoor arts experiences coupled with targeted engagement activities.

Freedom Festival would not be possible without the 130 incredible volunteers who give their time every summer to welcome artists and visitors to the festival and to the city.

We are proud to be one of three UK representatives of the IN SITU network, collaborating with 23 other European programmers to nurture artist development and support artists to develop new forms of art in public space.
