Abandon Normal Devices
Abandon Normal Devices is a major regional festival of new cinema and digital culture already in its second year and is driven by an exciting new partnership between three of the UK’s leading institutions dealing with art and digital culture.
Cornerhouse in Manchester, FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) in Liverpool and folly in Lancaster have joined forces to collaborate on the exciting task of imagining a new festival from scratch. This edition of AND is presented by Cornerhouse.
AND is a 2012 inspired festival, funded by Legacy Trust UK and part of WE PLAY, the Northwest cultural legacy programme for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Interact is the result of a thrilling collaboration between The Sancho Plan, Full Circle Arts and LiveWire at Cornerhouse. Groups of disabled young people and young refugees and asylum seekers from across the Northwest created various fantastical worlds using sensory technology. Challenging mediated notions of representation and stereotypes, this audiovisual installation is for all ages. Not to be missed!
