Beaford Arts Confluence - Beaford Arts

Confluence - Ground breaking digital arts project

Come and see what happens when art and cutting-edge technology meet in our unique environment, at the start of a year-long ground-breaking project along the River Torridge.

Confluence is a new arts, technology and environment project being delivered by partners Beaford Arts, University of Plymouth’s i-DAT (Institute of Digital Arts and Technology), the North Devon Biosphere Foundation and Appledore Arts.

We’ll be working along the Torridge - in Dolton, Merton, Great Torrington, Bideford, East-the-Water, Appledore and Instow.

Schools and communities, alongside artists selected in a national application process, will develop new work about each place. They’ll be using environmental data collected live by i-DAT’s devices which will also appear in new ways online.

This autumn, there’ll be launch events with demonstrations and workshops. i-DAT and their 5-metre Inflatable Dome will be on show -drop in and see what we’ll be getting up to!

Confluence is supported by Arts Council England and Leader 4. There’s lots more information online:,,
