A FREE exhibition showcasing the best and brightest talents in contemporary digital and media arts working across the ten Greater Manchester boroughs today.

Broad and imaginative in scope, these works explore the presentation of people and places in a media-saturated, technological age. Each borough is represented by one artist nominated by a local organisation, and serves as a snapshot of works made on a local scale with sights set on the horizon.
