Sprung Festival – Pirates!

Mon September 28 - Fri October 2

Ahoy m’hearty and welcome aboard the Moby Dick! Set sail to the Cloud on our swashbuckling epic of digital proportions. Meet small-time data pirates Mary and Bangus accompanied by their onboard A.I Siren, as they get thrown into Captain Hack Sparrow’s lucrative, yet seedy underbelly of personal data theft.

Uncover the story told through four unique transmedia episodes and become part of the voyage by tuning into the live zoom finale showdown! Inspired by Cambridge Analytica and Wikileaks, this comedic mini series will encourage you to question your privacy and online habits in a digital age where personal data is collected and sold like treasure.
