Synchronised is this year’s creative focus for the festival. Artists will be making digital work that explores how people, over the years, have built order in their lives at times of chaos. They will be telling stories we can all relate to; of life moving in, and out, of sync.
The focus will be:
- Repeated rituals - pattern, routine, reprogrammed behaviour
- Collective action - shared recovery, civic duty
- Disrupted reality - truth-telling, awake to injustice.
Synchronised is curated by Kevin Grist and Janet Moore of SparkedEcho. This is the second edition of Electric Medway.
