So what is the future of Gaming?

Fact Liverpool has a workshop next week looking at the Future of Gaming which hopes to answer the questions of "Where is the gaming industry headed and what are the possibilities for games to be applied and utilised in ways unimagined?"

Open Playground - the name of the session sets the scene for the future of new media and gaming, starting with the next 3-5 years. Inspired by three sets of provocations delivered by leading figures in the Gaming and New Media sectors, participants will be inspired to take an imaginative journey to a near future, desired futures, future visions, new forms of technologies, as well as the status quo, including the barriers participants face in achieving expectations and implementing envisaged technologies.

The Institue Cultural Capital says it's time that we look at this question through a series of events entitled "The Arts Them and Us: creating a more equitable system for subsidised culture"

The ICC has launched its Cultural Dialogues public event series with what promises to be a stimulating debate inspired by the Rebalancing our Cultural Capital report. First published in October 2013, 'Rebalancing' prompted heated reaction on the national distribution of arts funding in England, by highlighting a 'systemic drift of London bias'.
