AND produces, develops and stages one of the biggest media arts festivals in the UK.

Travelling to a new site and maps different terrain every two-years, it is a rehearsal space and catalyst a for new models of working. A place to become acquainted with active imaginations and active participation, it is an opportunity for artists to respond to a site and international platform. 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.
