This year, the AND Hub will feature a new pop-up cinema space designed by RAAD, a Liverpool-based architecture and urban design collective.

Below you’ll find a daily programme of talks, events and screenings, where audiences can come together with artists, creators, scientists and technologists to hear about their inspirations and visions.

You’re also welcome to join AND for drinks and a chance to meet the artists, AND team and new festival friends at 17:00 on Friday 4 October and Saturday 5 October.
