Digital Utopias is a one-day conference which will inspire and incite debate about how new technologies are enabling creativity across the arts. The conference aims to capture topical and diverse approaches to curation, archiving, collecting and creating from a range of art forms, from the visual arts to theatre.

What to expect on the day:

  • panel discussions on tech collaborations and how to activate the public space

Topical debates will take over the main auditorium where we will celebrate the connections between contemporary digital practice and art and technology histories; examine how organisations are redefining social spaces through networked objects and thinking machines, plus we invite insightful critiques of current art/tech collaborations.
