Our digital residencies are holding spaces for companies trailblazing in the field of Digital Arts. We're proud to invite both ChewBoy Productions and DYSPLA to our festival and hugely excited by the body of work that hugely enriches both our programme and the festival's finger print in the field of digital art.
We hope these spaces will act as shining torches in what's possible, in experimentation and audience accessibility.

The DYSPLA collection consists of 22 films & VR, 4 ‘Touch Narrative’ workshops and represents the largest curated collection of moving image work by British Neurodivergent filmmakers and artists. This collection, never before seen collectively, represents Neurodivergent Aesthetic, a term coined by DYSPLA back in 2018, but a concept they have been exploring since their inception.
Along with 360º moving image works and interactive haptic workshops, Creative Directors, Lennie Varvarides and Kazimir Bielecki also will present a provocative performance art video on the Neurodivergent Aesthetic, which represents the vitality and non filter of the neurodivergent mind.
