About this Event

‘Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of who do things no can imagine’ - Alan Turing

The Covid-19 global pandemic has amplified the trend for us to live our lives increasingly online. With people working and zooming from home and internet shopping dominating the market place, Wigan Town Centre is rapidly evolving to host the newly emerging experience economy.

WE WILL ALWAYS BE TOGETHER XX explores the extraordinary fantasies and new realities created by the computer age. Inside the screens of our Coltan powered electronic mobile devices, human beings live now in a constant flux between the digital and the real, always connected. The Fire Within exhibitions occupy a space once filled with shops now all transformed into a social space for culture, a new experience economy created as a direct consequence of the popularity of internet shopping and home delivery. For the launch exhibition of Digital Wigan 2020 ‘We Will Always Be Together’ at The Fire Within will explore the transformation of reality during the computer age and the transitions our lives pass through each day as we spend as much time online in digital worlds as we do in reality.
