Edinburgh in August is where the cream of the world's artistic and creative communities come together in the largest cultural festival on the planet. The Turing Festival brings the digital industries and the web into this gathering in a celebration of digital culture and creativity. Named in honour of Alan Turing, father of modern computing, the festival moves beyond traditional tech conferences to explore the ways in which technology is affecting all aspects of culture and society.
The festival is collaboration between the Interreg IVB NWE funded Open Innovation Project, The City of Edinburgh Council and Interactive Scotland. Our mission is to bring the world's leading innovators and technologists together with artists, performers, scientists and entrepreneurs to debate and discuss the impact of technology on humanity and the future.
