ART-AI Festival

ART-AI is a festival taking place at public venues across Leicester, exploring the role of AI in arts through a programme of creative work including installations, performances and discussions. Artworks by artists such as Mario Klingemann, Pinar Yoldas and Libby Heaney have been on display at local venues including Highcross Shopping Centre, hospital, city library and Phoenix Cinema. In 2019, the ART-AI Festival won Leicestershire Live’s inaugural ‘Innovation in the Creative Sector’ award.

The festival has been organised together with Dr Tracy Harwood (De Montfort University) and Chris Tyrer (Phoenix Cinema) in 2018 and 2019. The current edition is scheduled to take place between May and October 2021.
