Creative Exchange

This is a free to attend afternoon conference examining the opportunities presented by the concept of digital public space, where anyone, anywhere, anytime on any device will be able to access, explore and create with digitised cultural content. This is presented in conjunction with Futureeverything and Manchester Digital Developement Agency

16th May 2012, 2pm - 5.30pm, Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester

To guide us through this new landscape we have secured the services of 3 experts who will share their views and insights:

  • Bill Thompson, a leading UK journalist, broadcaster and critical commentator on technological trends and social innovation. 
  • Dr Jo Twist, CEO of UKIE, the association for UK Interactive Entertainment the sole trade body for the UK’s videogames and wider interactive entertainment industry.
  • Neville Brody, Designer and art director (researchstudios, Fuse) and recognised as one of the world’s most influential graphic designers.

Topics for discussion include:

  • What are the challenges and opportunities for new content creation using public sector data?
  • What might be the specific opportunities for academics, commercial partners and the general public to work together?
  • How far do our current systems of support including know-how about terms of sharing and copying and devices and platforms for integrating media content need to be reformed or reflected on in the light of an everywhere-connected world?
  • How might designers and arts/creatives capitalise on and contribute profitably to these shifts?
  • Who is doing what that might help define this space?

This is the latest edition and if some of the event have gone already then at least they will be back around at some point. So feel free to share. 

    As I can't get the iframe embed to work at the moment and I'm in a bit of a hurry here is the link to the presentation while I spend my time hopefully more fruitfully working out why the iframe embed isn't working.
