Story Posted: 11 December 2019
Having established these grounding elements in the first two years, the annual themes turned to growing and supporting a community, highlighting a sense of empowerment and collective self-awareness. ‘BRAVE TECH HEARTS BEAT AS ONE’ [2017 video link] in 2017 took into context global technological engagement and the difficulties experienced globally in 2016. Thematically the slogan referred to ideas around unity and the role of supporting and collaborating with each other through difficult times. The hands in the poster signify supporting and protecting, holding a beating technological heart.

The Illustrator depicted two hands holding the beating creative tech heart of the festival, symbolising the power of community and collective action in the face of adversity.
