Edinburgh International Festival 2013: The Leisure Revolution

This event has passed


Festival 2013 threw light on the relationships between artists and technologies: how new developments can influence how artists work and how in turn influence technologies. This programme of talks and discussions highlighted moments when changes and advances in technology enter our lives and affect them in ways we could never have predicted.

This event formed a part of the Edinburgh Festival 2013. Supported by the RSE and the Turing Festival.
