Something for Everyone

“Unscripted” has something for you: whether you create with a smart phone, an iPad or high-end gear; whether you are a wannabe, a social media nut, a hobbyist or are really good at it! But we have more than fun workshops, digital experiences and instagrammable moments.  The festival is also jam-packed with music, a kitchen party, a feast,  friends and more that is fun for the whole family!
