“There’s a pretty good chance that Lincoln, the steeply cobbled East Midlands treasure that motorways forgot, might just become the destination for digital culture in the UK”
Sara Zaltash, Journal of Wild Culture
Frequency is a platform for celebrating the pioneering spirit of digital innovation and culture through exhibition, creative collisions and debate. It showcases international and local work from artists that use digital tools and new media. The festival integrates art into Lincoln’s landscape in the form of installations, projections, site-specific work and live performances.
It is a melting pot and networking opportunity for artists, academics, creatives and the general public to engage with the debates about art and culture, and the ways in which the digital evolution is shaping our lives. Our mission is to develop long-term relationships with artists and arts organisations internationally.
Under the theme of ‘Liberation’, inspired by Lincoln’s copy of the Magna Carta, the third biennial edition in 2015 brought the city’s medieval streets to life with art that reflected life in a digital world. A record 17,000 visitors attended.
The fourth edition of Frequency will be a focal celebration as part of the City of Lincoln’s 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest. Taking place from Friday 20th – Sunday 29th October 2017, the festival will be exploring the theme of ‘disPLACEment’.
