Technology and gaming

From new ways to experience contemporary performance, to possible greener futures for gaming, many of this year's festival events explore technology and its impact on the way we experience what it is to be human today. 

“What it means to be human in a digital age is at the heart of the Being Human festival’s identity. Many humanities researchers are embracing new technologies and working across disciplines to enable us to understand the past and anticipate the future in new ways, from how gaming changes our ideas about storytelling and the development of the imagination, to how AI is challenging time-honoured beliefs that intelligence is central to what makes us human.” said Professor Sarah Churchwell, the festival’s director.
