Welcome

24hr-Digithon-EFlyerWelcome to the Access Space World Wide Digithon, which ran from 7am, 19th July 2014 BST, for 24 hours straight, all day and all night.

Access space is the longest running free media and digital arts lab in the UK, running since 2000.  We need your help to keep those doors open!

We did it! 24 hours of greatness. Thanks so much to all the contributors from around the world, both in terms of performance and hard (paypal) cash, and the volunteers who made it possible. It’s not too late to donate.

If you missed it, or want to watch again, here’s the (still in-progress) list of contributions, with links to recorded video. Enjoy our carefully choreographed shabby telethon-style aesthetic!

Myself and 2 others will play “Space is the Place” in tribute to Sun Ra and Access Space. This can be performed in an electro-acoustic form with an underlying electronic score, counterpointed by african drumming, banjo and other “space” related sounds. We will encourage audience participation where appropriate.
