Background

Sheffield's Lovebytes Digital Arts Festival has developed an international
reputation for supporting and exhibiting new innovative art using digital
technologies and interactive multimedia. It offers an eclectic mixture of
exhibitions, events and specially commissioned work exploring the creative
and cultural impact of digital media and communications. The festival was
established in 1994 by two media professionals Janet Jennings and Jon
Harrison and is a non-profit making limited company with core funding from
the European Regional Development Fund, The National Lottery and Yorkshire
and Humberside Arts. The Festival is now a biennial event providing an
important platform for both newcomers and established artists involving a
number of venues and organisations in Yorkshire with links to venues around
the UK and Europe.

In the build-up to the next festival in 2000 we are running a programme of
events throughout the year and have established 'Lovebytes Lab'. The Lab
provides facilities for artists and designers working with computers and
offers a wide range of hardware and software for the production of digital
video, audio and multimedia. We aim to provide a friendly, creative
environment, promoting networking, skill sharing and collaborative
projects. We will be offering artist's residencies and training workshops
later in the year. The Lab will also provide a base for a number of
Lovebytes projects including 'Digital Space' - a series of twelve
commissions for artists working with interactive audio and multimedia
installations.
