Real / Virtual


22 Jun 2017 to 25 Jun 2017
Opening times:

6pm-10pm Thursday

11am-9pm Friday

11am-6pm Saturday-Sunday


In an era where technology is fully assimilated into society, augmented and virtual reality have shifted notions of what constitutes the ‘real world’. Is reality distinct from this rapidly emerging virtual landscape? Will technology improve our future, making it efficient, sustainable and happy or could it be our downfall?


REAL/ VIRTUAL is the launch of a 5 month programme of events which explore the boundaries of reality and virtuality. This festival will take place in our 47/49 Tanner Street building and features exhibitions, installation, performance and workshops.
