Sheffield Doc/Fest's Arts Programme (formerly Alternate Realities) is a space for experimentation, exploring narrative through research and bringing together varied forms and languages. The exhibition we produce is a group show, allowing for the discovery of a multiplicity of artists, artworks and practices in non-fiction from around the world, advocating for a critical and reflective space.
As the balance around us shifts, we develop new channels for artistic expression, in welcoming in depth insights into atelier culture and research, we question the notion of interactivity and remain true to the artform and its authenticity.
