Access Space is producing the first Pixelache Network European open source arts festival in the UK!

As the UK hub of the network we are bringing arts practice from across Northern Europe – with artists from Finland, France, Iceland, Norway and Latvia – to Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

Digital arts performances and workshops over the festival weekend.

Our European partners are:

All events and workshops are free, except Algorave (just £5 entry) on Sunday 17th.
