• Impakt Festival 2017: Haunted Machines & Wicked Problems

    Join us this year from 25-29 October for Impakt Festival 2017: Haunted Machines & Wicked Problems, curated by Natalie Kane and Tobias Revell

    The programme of this edition of Impakt Festival seeks to address the relationship between technology, religion, magic and the occult. Through the framework of myth, magic and monsters, an international line-up of speakers, performers, thinkers, artists, designers and technologists will address how in magic, the spectacle is used to hide technical processes; in myth, how we build stories and narratives to culturally assimilate complex technologies; and how we use monsters to think about when things go wrong and people are hurt.


    Professionals are invited to apply for an accreditation.
