Digital technology now has a great impact on every aspect of our lives. It has changed how we interact with each other, how we perform our tasks and how we make purchases. It has even allowed us to work remotely, which is crucial for many, particularly during the pandemic.
The huger role that digital technology plays in our lives makes digital events a big part of our year of culture. This year, there are some exciting digital projects and events in Leeds that you can take advantage of.
Leeds Digital Festival is back and is scheduled from September 20 to October 1. It will feature a series of events that emphasise the importance of collaboration and allow people the space to experiment with new ideas.
One of the main events that you should look out for is the Game Jam which would run from September 21-30. It aims to allow people to come together individually or in groups to test out ideas for a digital artwork or video game.
Another noteworthy event is the Tech for the Public Good, a project launched in partnership with the British Council and the Frontiers Institute at the University of Leeds. This is an international project for 10 people who want to find answers to some of the biggest challenges faced by people around the world and try to solve them through creativity and technology.
