Arts and technology festival

What is AltPitch

The AltPitch Arts and Technology Festival is an online festival that aims to explore the human relationship with digital technology. We bring together creativity and innovation, question our daily use of technology and leave the audience to search for answers.

We want to connect artists and their creative ideas with the audience online. We are also running live events bringing together true thinkers and making sure we are asking #enoughquestions

AltPitch is the people’s festival. Between the 1st and the 31st of March annually the shortlisted artworks are available on our website for the audience to Watch and Rate. Three shows with the highest rating by the audience will receive a commission from us to support their next production.

To Watch and Rate the festival works from the main programme you will need to purchase a monthly Watch and Rate ticket. There is only one vote per viewer per artwork. To ensure that the rating is meaningful, the minimal viewing time before your can rate is 3 minutes.

The fringe programme can be viewed for free but you cannot rate the artworks in this section.
