Web We Want Festival

Saturday 27 September 2014 - Sunday 31 May 2015

The Web We Want festival is back! Join us as the Web takes over the Royal Festival Hall for the second weekend of our Web We Want festival, exploring the past 25 years of the Web and looking to the shape of the future. Explore some of the things that threaten the web as we know it and what solutions there might be with a free programme of digital art, interactive workshops and installations. 

Help design the Web We Want online game, learn the basics of computer programming in the Centre for Computing History 1980s IT classroom, rediscover Space Invaders and Pac-Man in the retro gaming room or build and design a website from scratch. Bring your ‘generation retina’ kids to learn what a pixel is with real life Minecraft paper swords, create an artwork using Google Streetview or explore how contemporary artists are approaching the internet.
