Frequency Festival biennial has become a key highlight in Lincoln’s cultural calendar; renowned for city-wide digital takeovers in non-traditional spaces, immersive and interactive experiences that are free and open to all, workshops and events.
Frequency celebrates the pioneering spirit of digital innovation, showcasing works by emerging and established artists from across the globe; sparking debates on digital culture and inspiring the digital creative in us all.
The festival integrates art into Lincoln’s landscape in the form of installations, projections, site-specific work, talks and live performances.
Since it’s inception in 2011, Frequency has hosted over 450 local, national and international artists, exhibiting their work to over 60,000 visitors.
Talent development is embedded in Frequency’s ethos, and during the festival we nurture the next generation of creative talent to develop skills and connect to industry in a way that is meaningful and mutually beneficial for students, graduates, volunteers and local businesses.
Frequency Festival is produced by Threshold Studios in partnership with the University of Lincoln and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The event is driven by a dynamic city wide collaboration of public sector organisations including Lincoln BIG, Lincolnshire One Venues (LOV), Visit Lincoln, City of Lincoln Council and other collaborators, along with support from local businesses.
The festival is being supported by a team of recent graduate interns, representing the next generation of talent emerging from the University of Lincoln, funded by the University’s internship scheme.
