The Takeaway Festival of do-it-yourself media returns to the Dana Centre for a fourth year. Get hands-on and turn yourself from media consumer to media producer with a fresh batch of talks, workshops and exhibitions exploring emerging technology for art, design and communication.

The three-day Takeaway Festival marks the start of a two-week exhibition of originally conceived projects that look to RFID (radio frequency identification) tags and the DIY music ethos for their cues.

Expect eerie floating choirs and RFID-card-triggered robotics as we open our doors to projects which pull apart and reconnect media and technology in unexpected ways.
