York Mediale is back!

The biennial media arts festival returns this week from Wednesday, 21 October to Sunday, 25 October, though some events will continue later in to the year.

York Mediale is an independent arts charity that was founded in 2014 to celebrate the designation of York as the UK’s first and only UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts.

The first festival was launched in 2018 and will continue to deliver an international media arts festival every two years.

Take a look to see what’s in store this year…

York Mediale 2020

Wed Oct 21 @ 10.00 am - Sun Oct 25 @ 10.00 pm

This year York Mediale is presenting six new commissions, including five world premieres and one UK premiere. The festival will continue into the new year.

York Mediale 2020 has been conceived for and influenced by 2020. The mixture of digital arts will reflect and respond on the year with both virtual and in-person events.

Featuring installations, art, live performance, and audio-visual experiences York Mediale continues to push the boundaries of our imaginations…
