Multiverse Arcade is open to the public! This interactive installation for young people is part of Great Exhibition of the North. We have welcomed 4000+ people through the doors in the first 20 days. Follow our Multiverse Arcade Insta to hear the voices they added to the arcade. Want to add your voice? All the details are here.

Your Voice Makes Waves, a special event for young people is coming up! 6.30-8pm on Wednesday 29 August. The event is inspired by the 100s of voices collected through Multiverse Arcade. It mixes live performance and digital arts. It invites young people (we're counting that as anyone aged 12-25) to imagine how our world could be different, and come up with ideas for action. Want to come along? Tickets are FREE. Book here.

We are recruiting! We are looking for 2 Associate Artists to join our team. These 2 new roles, Associate Artist: Children & Young People and Associate Artist: Digital, aim to enable more people to take part in our creative processes. Interested? Find out more at the links above. Apply by 6 August.
