The Sheffield Digital Festival is a week long celebration of all that is great about the digital and creative industries within our city and the surrounding region
The overall aim of the Festival is to explore and celebrate “where creativity meets technical excellence” this year’s theme: Our Future City. And we’ll be focusing on three streams of activity where the conversations and innovation are already setting Sheffield apart: HealthTech, Arts, Culture & Heritage and Enabling Decarbonisation. You might like to incorporate those ideas into your event, but you don’t have to stick to them - we’re keen to encourage as wide a range of digital-related events as possible. It’s fine to use your event to promote what you do, but please don’t make it just a sales pitch.
We will again be inviting businesses, organisations and individuals to put on their own events during the Festival week. These will all be featured on the Festival events calendar and promoted through the Festival channels. We also hope to run a “Showcase” to provide a space for content from across the digital and creative spectrum; this could be a product showcase, an article, a piece of digital artwork, a podcast – anything that contributes to the purpose and theme of the Festival but doesn’t fit easily into an event format.
The Sheffield Digital Festival is going from strength to strength, despite challenging times, and has already achieved a great deal in putting the city region’s digital cluster firmly on the map. We hope that you will be part of continuing that work and celebrating Sheffield’s creative and technical excellence.
There will be more announcements soon but, if you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
