AND produces, develops and stages one of the biggest media arts festivals in the UK. Travelling to and mapping a different terrain every two-years, AND Festival is a rehearsal space and catalyst for new models of working. The programme invites new ways of seeing the world through re-negotiating our relationship to place featuring live cinema events, installations, online projects, residencies, public realm interventions exhibitions, performances, games and apps.

Over the past decade, AND has commissioned over 80 works from international artists that have pushed boundaries, engaging and inspiring thousands of audience members both nationally and overseas. After being premiered by AND, some of these works are available to hire.

Through research projects we create a space for high-level industry based knowledge exchange and wider public engagement, conversation and debate.
