A week long exhibition of specially commissioned interactive digital art pieces, games, brand new apps and virtual reality headsets for children and families to play with. With digital crafts and hands-on activities and workshops.

Most of the time when you go to a traditional Art Gallery you are asked to look with your eyes and not touch. At this exhibition we're going to let you touch the art. In fact we insist.
