Launch Event

The Festival is a collaboration between De Montfort University, independent AI arts curator, Luba Elliott, Phoenix and Highcross Shopping Centre.  It has been supported by the award-winning #DMULocal programme, a De Montfort initiative dedicated to fulfilling the University’s commitment to benefit the public good and promote Leicester.  In 2016/17 #DMULocal supported and coordinated over 90 projects in Leicester and internationally, with over 33,000 hours of volunteering being carried out by student volunteers.

The project team that has brought this AI in Art Festival to Leicester will introduce its aims and objectives, and highlight the contributions from artists and computer scientists at the Launch Event. Come and join us for a relaxing evening and a chance to meet the curators and contributors.
