Festival

York Mediale 2020

Starting 21st October 2020

York Mediale 2020 is here!

YM2020 is here. We are excited to present six major new commissions, including five world premieres and one UK premiere. 

Starting on October 21st and continuing into the new year, YM2020 is a cacophony of experiential digital art conceived for and influenced by 2020. 

We want to help kick start the cultural heart of York and the UK with a world premiere loaded, digitally engaged, mentally stimulating, adrenaline shot of a festival. 

YM2020 looks to explore, challenge and reflect on what connects us. At a time of social distancing, a climate emergency and political upheaval, we are shining a light on how we connect with our loved ones, our community, the natural environment and culture.  

Including a visually stunning experiential gallery show, a virtual séance to the loss of live performance, a contemplative and powerful installation about love and absence, and a weirdly familiar digitally enhanced walking documentary about community.

To stay up-to-date on the latest York Mediale coverage including artist highlights and upcoming announcements, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and keep your eyes peeled on our opportunities page.
