Following its successful launch in 2011, the second Frequency festival will again provide a platform to celebrate the pioneering spirit of digital culture through exhibition, creative collision and debate.  With investment from a wide range of partners, including the University of Lincoln and Arts Council England, Frequency 2013 will include installations and exhibitions from local, national and international artists will transform historic venues across Lincoln.  Festival Director Uzma Johal: “It will be a dynamic platform and showcase for Lincolnshire, putting us on the global map as an exciting destination for creativity and culture.”

The exhibition is being brought to the city thanks to a partnership between the University of Lincoln, Lincoln BIG, Visit Lincoln and Lincolnshire One Venues (LOV) with Threshold Studios, who will again take the lead as Festival Directors. Threshold Studios is an artist-led creative media and visual arts organisation specialising in the production of digital, moving image and public realm works.

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with the Frequency Festival of Digital Culture again.  It provides a gateway for the public to experience revolutionary artwork that they might not otherwise have encountered, and here at the University of Lincoln, our staff and students are looking forward to being part of Frequency 2013.”

As well as integrating contemporary art into Lincoln’s landscape, the festival will also bring new opportunities for creative professionals and recent graduates, by creating a number of internship positions and inviting contributions from local artists.  If you want to get involved, get in touch with Frequency now!
