We all have a digital footprint. Be it on social media, via music downloads, gaming avatars, voicemails, photos or email. But what happens to all of these digital touch-points when someone dies? Jump on board for an evening of technological exploration, and envision a future where digital immortality becomes a reality. Could AI be the way to soothe grief and prolong life after death, or could technology be racing too fast for regulation to steer a safe and steady course?

As part of an interactive world premiere, audiences are invited to watch Dust to Data – four short film monologues that each explore relatable near future stories of the opportunities and threats posed by different aspects of digital afterlives. Join the debate to consider the digital legacies we leave behind us when we die, and what role we can play in shaping the future of these pioneering technologies.
