Brighton Digital Festival is a celebration of digital culture that takes place across Brighton and Hove every September. 2015 marks the fifth consecutive year for the Festival.
Throughout the heart of the festival program, there is a curated stream of arts and education activity that the Festival coordinates. These arts commissions and digital education awards help bolster the Festival’s commitment to widening access and engagement with big ideas in contemporary digital culture.
The event is a celebration of how the city has embraced all things digital and is fast becoming known as the ‘silicon valley of the south’. Some local companies developed and ran some really innovative events and displays. From the Laser Light show from Seb Lee-Delisle through to the Waiting Wall, a digital version of Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall that the public can use to display anonymous messages to people waiting at the station.
