The festival is now underway and we have lots of digital artworks and events for you to enjoy.
NEoN Digital Arts Festival 10th-13th November 2021
Under the theme ‘Wired Women*’, NEoNs annual festival will look to address the digital gender divide and highlight the contribution of female and nonbinary artists in shaping the digital and technology-driven arts sector. Our 4-day festival will be a hybrid mix of online and physical exhibitions, interventions, performances, and talks celebrating new and past works by women and nonbinary artists.
* Inclusive of Trans and Intersex women, as well as non-binary and gender fluid people who are comfortable in a space that centers the experience of women.
Our online festival platform launched this morning, starting a new and exciting era for NEoN. We are well known for taking the digital into the physical space, however, this new online platform gives us the opportunity to experiment with a wider range of works in the virtual space, as well as expanding our reach across the web.

For an in-person experience, you can catch up at the Overgate Shopping Centre, Dundee where you can see INTER/her by Camillie Baker. INTER/her, is a new multi-sensory, immersive VR art installation. INTER/her takes Camille's personal experience and those of other women who have had post-reproductive diseases and pain to create a Virtual Reality, sound, and haptic, fully immersive artwork. The work explores the psychological issues of womanhood and the sense of self. INTER/her is based on Camille's experience and journey through the healthcare system while she was treated for a post-reproductive disease in 2016. The ideas and development of the work emanating from experiencing women’s silence, conflicting information, and inconsistencies in support for women’s health. Book your ticket here.
