boti’s brighton digital festival pick of the week

The Brighton Digital Festival is in full swing, bringing a month of digital exploration to the city. The festival focuses on the richness of the creative and cultural industries in our city and celebrates the ways digital technology continues to shape our lives and our thinking. Scary stuff? More exciting than scary in our (mac)book. If you find yourself scrolling aimlessly through the internet and you’re not always sure if it is for the better, be prepared for some thought-provoking digital art that explores our ever-changing world, helping us to understand how the future is being built.

One of the great things that has caught our eye about this year’s manifesto is that they are focusing on creating opportunities for older people and other members of the community without access to digital devices, so they can understand and engage with digital culture. For a city that bases its parking payments on individuals having access to a mobile phone, we find this pretty interesting. Here’s our Brighton Digital Festival pick of the week:
