Art and technology R&D programme exploring the future today
Digital Democracies, led by Threshold Studios and supported by Arts Council England, is a pioneering national project that aims to create a new generation of radically inclusive public cultural experiences in shared places where we live, work and play.
Digital Democracies brings together three of the UK’s leading commissioning agencies and festivals:
- Threshold Studios (Frequency International Festival of Digital Culture, Lincoln)
- Freedom Festival Arts Trust (Freedom Festival, Hull)
- Lighthouse (Brighton Digital Festival, co-produced with Brandwatch)
Festivals-led, the project combines expertise across art in the public realm, digital innovation, social impact and place-based partnerships with global industry networks and national audiences.
