Electric Medway21st August 2021 - 30th August 2021
Location: Medway, Kent
I am part of the Electric Medway festival this year with a commission to produce a short film.
21-30 August 2021
Following a successful debut in 2020, Electric Medway returns this summer with an ambitious 10-day arts programme held in a variety of locations, with free-to-see artworks and activities including virtual reality, streamed performances, animation, projection and sound.
The central theme for this year’s festival is ‘Synchronised’, with commissioned artists making brand new digital work that explores how people create order in their lives during times of chaos – something many of us can relate to at the current time. With this in mind, the contributing artists have created pieces that explore repeated rituals, including daily patterns, routines and reprogrammed behaviour. Another strand is collective action, with ideas of shared recovery and a
sense of civic duty considered. While the global pandemic has been a central aspect of all our lives, other important issues have also engendered a sense of disrupted reality, such as truth-telling and a wider public awakening to injustice.
