Sheffield Digital Festival would be delighted to hear from any Digital Artists, Makers, Technologists, Companies or Collaborators who are interested in presenting or speaking at our Main event on the 21st of May 2020 and our Opening Event on the 15th of May.

The Festival is a celebration of all of the great things that the creative and digital communities of Sheffield excel at, framed under the theme ‘Where creativity meets technical excellence’. This year's main focus is ‘Discovery’ and we are looking for speakers who have discovered new approaches or ways of working by discovering new partners, new technologies or even creative processes that have unlocked new and exciting opportunities for you. What can design and technology do when they are brought together? 

What are we looking for?

We are looking for individuals or groups that can deliver really engaging, exciting talks / demonstrations of around 20 minutes, with the potential to open up debate and lively conversations around the topics of art, design and technology. The Festival organisers are looking to work with the selected presenters to ensure that we offer an exciting, memorable and rewarding experience for the 200 plus delegates in the room and our plans to broadcast the talks to an online audience. 

The festival will be willing to support travel and accommodation expenses if you are travelling from outside of the city.

How to enquire?

If you are interested in being part of the festival please respond to info@sheffielddigitalfestival.com with a proposal or examples of previous public performances, by the 28th of February 2020

Looking forward to hearing from you, The SDF Team.
