Join in digital making projects that explore, reclaim and confront technology in the arts and society

Work with the Digital Maker Collective and guest makers to explore the boundaries of participation and interaction through digital experiments, performances, interventions, and conversation.

Join any of our four interdisciplinary pop-up digital maker gatherings. At the centre of the event will be a large participatory digital maker base camp, a space to develop agile and experimental projects led by members of the Collective. Explore anything from virtual, mixed/augmented reality and virtual/real interventions, to creating artificial creatures and utopian or dystopian worlds. Use sensors, microcomputers and biofeedback devices to create interactive objects and digital interactions.

The Digital Maker base camp will evolve and respond to themes, public interactions and our invited guest maker activities, interventions, debates and performances happening throughout the four dates:

This event is programmed by Digital Maker Collective, a Tate Exchange Associate.
