Last year, Brighton Digital Festival took a pioneering journey to the ‘messy edge’ – the more human, less clinical and more interesting version of the ‘cutting edge’ - with a smart band of conference goers. This year we’re going back.
The Messy Edge is Brighton Digital Festival's in-house conference; its heart and its voice. It’s where we unpack some of the social, cultural and political implications of technology, it’s where we challenge dominant perspectives.
This is a conference for all, so join us for a day of thought-provoking talks by artists, activists and thinkers about the stuff - good, bad and ugly - that underpins our daily lives and is shaping the world we live in.
