Two years on from Perma-Crisis being named word of the year, living on planet earth feels fraught. There is rapid technological, ecological and environmental change, within the context of an information age assault on the senses.
Lincoln Arts Centre, in fact I think we all are, seeking out and craving a little bit of hope and good dollop of joy in our lives at the moment.
It's the 12th anniversary of International Festival of Digital Culture: Frequency. Which can only mean that Lincoln’s famous sites and cobbled streets will be transformed by innovative and immersive digital experiences as global and local artists takeover the city.
Following the full-scale re-launch of Lincoln Arts Centre, we wanted to delve deeper in our new artistic approach. So our Director Ben is taking us through some of the details...
Ahead of Demo on April 21st, we sat down with Mishap Theatre to talk all things 'Twenty Something'.

Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, owned and operated by University of Lincoln, has received a grant of £71,600 from the Government’s £1. 57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help the organisation recover and reopen.
Lincoln Performing Arts Centre was lit up red on Friday 20 March for the final time as part of the We Make Events #LightItInRedCampaign, joining 2000 places across 25 countries to raise the plight of the hundreds of thousands of highly skilled professionals serving the events industry. Having previously lit up the outside of the venue, this time our technical team and students studying on the BA Technical Theatre and Stage Management course at University of Lincoln shone a new light onto our backstage areas, producing some wonderfully evocative images.
The release date for A Distant Christmas is approaching, so let’s get to know some of the tech team who have been working on transferring live performance to an augmented reality app.
So far (touch wood!) we have only had one performer go into isolation, but unfortunately this has happened twice for her already over the rehearsal period! But in this digital era, a man down doesn’t necessarily mean a man gone. She was still able to contribute to discussions and developments through email and she has been present at every rehearsal via live video connection.

Lincoln Performing Arts Centre's operations have been severely affected by the current pandemic and so to help retain our employees and reduce the long-term impact on the venue during a time when we are unable to trade, University of Lincoln has opted to take part in the UK Government's Coronavirus Job Retention scheme and so has placed its staff on furlough. Upon the staff’s return your enquiry will be answered as soon as possible.
