Across Access Autonomy: Rethinking Hybrid Culture is an event that gathers thoughts and tools for truly inclusive cultural programming that is independent from mainstream platforms and experimental in its approaches to hybridity. In a post-pandemic setting, centralised and commercial platforms and providers have taken over the “online” lives of cultural institutions, often offering limited options for access, inclusivity and participation.

During this event, we will examine how we might work with free and open-source tools before, during, and after an event - stepping away from speculative technologies and realising digital culture in alternative ways. In recognising that platforms also become epistemic and infrastructural institutions affecting cultural production, we will question what other hybridity is possible, highlighting past, existing and potential avenues.
