Welcome to Festival X – a unique celebration from the School of Creative Industries at the University of Newcastle. We have a slogan of sorts here: that ‘we love what we do, and we do what we love’ and there’s nothing we enjoy more than sharing the extraordinary work of passionate people.
So dive in and experience sound and music, performance, movies, Virtual Reality, visual art and design, illustration and combinations of these that you may not have thought possible. In the five day line up you'll find Ricochet Songs, inspiring TED-style talks, an extraordinary event called This Land, international animation, augmented reality and much, much more.
It’s a chance to see what’s at the cutting edge of creative technology, talk to the creative practitioners of the future, and wander between experiences in the heart of our beautiful city. X marks the spot.
