  • 12 social media artists-in-residence, nominated by a leader in one country and hosted by an organisation in another

The festival directly engaged 6,888 people from across the UK, Hong Kong, United States and the globe, and reached almost 96,000 people.  You can still view the new commissions and the panel discussions on the archived 2020 Peer to Peer: UK/HK 2020 website.
