UNBOXED: CREATIVITY IN THE UK SUMMER PROGRAMME – JULY AND AUGUST LISTINGS

UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK is a celebration of creativity taking place across the UK in 2022 featuring free 10 major creative projects including large-scale events, installations, and globally accessible digital experiences. The ten projects are the result of collaborations across science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths, bringing new ideas for our shared futures, from the transformation of a decommissioned off-shore rig to a magical pop-up garden in the centre of Birmingham, and from storytelling through ground-breaking multimedia technologies, to Wales propelled thirty years into the future.
Audiences are immersed in sound and light in an artwork experienced with closed eyes that explores the limitless potential of the human mind.
