About Our Collective
Digital Shoreditch celebrates the outstanding creative, technical and entrepreneurial talent of East London and Tech City. We run monthly meetups, an enormous annual festival of the most talented digital and technical creatives, a comprehensive directory, hackathons, and more.
For Digital Shoreditch 2013 festival, Monday 20th-Friday 31st May, we’ll have an awesome lineup of speakers for a week long workshop on everything happening in digital and tech, we’re turning the basement of Shoreditch Town Hall into an extraordinary digital playground, and the incredible East London community will be sharing the love with a week of Open Studios, meetups and events.
If you’d like to run an open studio or an event as part of the community programme outside the DS HQ then visit our Open Studios page.
Below is a snapshot of the 2012 festival (roll on 2013!):
We had a riot taking over Shoreditch with late-night parties, open houses, workshops, interactive artworks and installations, and augmented reality games.
Our collective ambition for 2012 was delivering one of London’s most expansive digital and creativity tech festival, and to build up a vibrant community of digital creatives. Mission accomplished
The vision going forward is to emulate the success of South By South West and be as significant within four years. We aim to be recognised as one of the world’s premier events for showcasing the most talented companies and individuals in the digital and tech sectors.
We host monthly meetups, workshops, and news updates. The aim is to facilitate an enormous spectrum of individuals and companies to connect and exchange ideas, generate a greater openness within the digital space, and facilitate innovators from all walks of life to contribute to a flourishing creative society. We will also be mapping and showcasing outstanding companies and projects in the local community; get in touch if you have something exciting to shout about or want to become part of our collective!
Anyone can be involved – there are no limits.
Where is it?
The events mainly happen in and around vibrant Shoreditch, Clerkenwell and Brick Lane. With largest concentration of digital creatives in Europe, this is the ideal place to explore and interact with the latest in digital innovation. Whether you are interested in rocking out at digital parties or developing skills through educational presentations, we will be planning something to cater for all interests and tastes! Outside the area but want to get involved or host an event? Shoreditch is a state of mind – we can make it work.
