Now in its fourth year, Frequency, presented by Midlands-based media arts producer, Threshold Studios culminates the work of local, national and international artists. The work will be inspired by the digital conversion of community, identity and a sense of place, alongside important global issues such as migration, inequality and class divides.

“We are delighted to be returning to Lincoln for Frequency 2017, an access-for-all festival that celebrates and debates the ever-growing realm of digital culture, ”explained Uzma Johal MBE, co-director of the festival and Threshold Studios.
