Life Rewired Hub

Visit the Life Rewired Hub on Level G

Talks, performances, workshops and residencies

Inspired by and responding to our cross-arts season for 2019, the Life Rewired Hub is our new pop-up space on Level G. Hosting a programme of talks, performances, workshops, and residencies, this flexible new structure invites audiences to engage with the dizzying impact of technological and scientific change on what it means to be human today.

The Hub will be home to an exhibition which presents new writing and short films from artists and thinkers who are navigating the complex, vast, and all-too-often confusing discourse taking place around the impact of technology on our lives.

The Life Rewired Hub is being programmed in partnership with the British Council and Royal Society, and has been designed by architects Dyvik Kahlen.
