A celebration of art made by hundreds of people using computers and technology on Margate High Street.
This 10 day festival includes work made by hundreds of local artists and makers. Engage with large scale collaborative interactive art. Try your hand at beginner electronics and creative coding and experience film, music, electronics, visuals and all things digital made by a growing local scene.

Many of the artists and makers will be in the space, come in and have a chat or sign up for the free workshops.
Highlights include a 10m wide drawing robot, a digital animation coded and designed by all 220 Ramsgate Arts Primary School kids, a resident engineer building a digital Ukelele in a semi-dome and a horrific video game made by East Kent Mencap. There will be VR, AR, 3D printing, Arduino and Pi, Projection Mapping, Live-coding, electronica, electronics, sonic art, maggot brains, video games, interactives and every other digital thing that we can squeeze into the space.
