The arts an important part of Brighton’s new Digital Festival

AmbITion champion Bill Thompson of the BBC took his podcast programme (and now merged with BBC TV show of the same name) ‘Click’ to Brighton’s first Digital Festival.

It is an event that brings together hackers, digital artists and technophiles to explore the realms of digital technology.

Hackers from a Mini Maker Faire demonstrate how they have repurposed various bits of old gadgetry.

Click also hears from Honor Harger one of the organisers (and Arts Council England #digicaparts champion) of the festival about the big questions that are being posed about our information society and where it is all going. A great example of the arts sector at the heart of the digital debate.
