UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK
10 programmes have been shaped across science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics by brilliant minds working in unexpected collaborations. See unmissable events and unforgettable experiences in places and spaces right across the UK: from coastal towns and city centres to breath-taking areas of natural beauty.
You’ll be able to experience UNBOXED in person, on TV, on radio and online – entirely for free. And they want you to get involved in every part of this extraordinary year: diving into their UK-wide learning programmes, taking part in workshops and special events, or playing a central role in bringing one or more of these 10 projects to life.
Alongside Dreamachine, you’ll be able to:
Take a thrilling multimedia ride through 13.8 billion years of history in About Us, get growing with Dandelion as they reinvent the harvest festival for the 21st century, fast-forward three decades with GALWAD: A Story from our Future, and become one of 20,000 ‘Lumenators’ lighting up our wild and beautiful places in Green Space Dark Skies. You can explore the solar system with Our Place in Space, tour a magical forest in the heart of the city with PoliNations, and climb aboard a repurposed North Sea offshore platform in SEE MONSTER. StoryTrails is animating and amplifying the hidden histories of our towns and cities – while Tour de Moon is a major festival created in collaboration with our lunar satellite.
UNBOXED is the biggest and most ambitious creative programme ever presented in the UK. It’s funded and supported by the four governments of the UK, and is co-commissioned with Belfast City Council, EventScotland and Creative Wales. Join millions for this landmark exploration of how creativity has the power to change the world.
