Dan Hett is a BAFTA-winning artist and creative technologist. He’s worked with the likes of the BBC, Sky and TATE, and is currently a selected artist on FutureEverything’s cutting-edge FAULT LINES program. He builds big, exciting, challenging things with technology – brave, tangible, noisy things that people can experiment with, play with or even dance to but most of all express their creativity.
While Dan is well known within his field, he came to global prominence when his brother, Martyn Hett, was identified as one of the 22 killed in the Manchester Arena terrorist bombing. Since then, Dan and his family have embraced support from around the world but also felt the sting of Internet trolls. They have sought to use their prominence and the memory of Martyn to combat hatred and intolerance, and Dan is now actively engaged in opening up the debate on the effects of extremism.
