BLEED (Biennial Live Event in the Everyday Digital) is a six year project exploring how the online makes us feel. Taking place between the live and digital, this is your space to visit, watch, listen and read your way through the strangeness of our IRL and URL existence. In 2022 BLEED considers the potential and problems of borders, exploring the sites of intersection between and within humans, technology, nationhood, and our emotional and digital geographies.

BLEED takes place across three cities, online and in person, from 29 August – 25 September.
