Barbican Weekender invites you to bring your family and friends 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’s holographic installation I’ll be Your Mirror or visit the Curve to experience UVA's Momentum, a carefully choreographed sequence of light, sound and movement.

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