Barbican Weekender
invites you to explore image and identity through a unique combination of arts and technology.

Profoundly affecting every part of our lives, digital technologies have changed the way we consume media and the arts and have made it possible for you to create images, videos, music and art that, through the internet, can be seen and heard instantly by a global audience.

Experiment with new digital tools; test the possibilities of 3-D printing with Black Country Atelier; uncover elements of your identity with the danceroom Spectroscopy - an interactive, dance-based installation; lose yourself in choreographer Darren Johnston ís holographic installation Iíll be Your Mirror . or experience UVA ís Momentum , a carefully choreographed sequence of light and movement.

From music and art to dance and poetry, this Weekender provides you with a range of workshops, installations and performances for all ages.
