KWMC supports new digital arts programme – Control Shift

We’re excited to be supporting Control Shift – a new arts programme coming to Bristol in June 2020 to explore ‘creative and critical approaches to technology.’

Launching on 5 June, Control Shift will include a weekend of events (featuring performances, workshops, and talks) and an exhibition taking place across different locations in Bristol, which will run until 19 June.

Call for contributions

Control Shift is encouraging people to rethink their relationships with technology. For example: what might happen if there was more space for us to engage with ‘digital’ in physical ways?  Or in poetic ways?

Control Shift have issued an open call for artworks, workshops and provocations that tackle the themes of the programme. For more information and how to apply visit and submit your idea by 15 March 2020.

The Control Shift Network

The Control Shift Network are a collective of artists, technologists and producers. In 2019 KWMC supported their first event, ‘You Make the Rules’, a day of workshops followed by a musical performance generated by live coding as part of Processing Community Day (a global celebration of ‘art, code and diversity’ initiated by the Processing Foundation). Control Shift has developed from this event and follows the same ethos, with a focus on accessibility and diversity.

With additional support from Arts Council England, KWMC, UWE and the Institute of Coding, in 2020 the Network has been able to develop a more focused curatorial theme, support more artists, present artworks and invite speakers.
