Nesta, Arts Council England and the Arts & Humanities Research Council would like to invite you to Making Digital Work, an event designed for you to share and participate in the learning from the funded projects of the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts.

The day will include keynote speakers, presentations, demonstrations and performances by some of the funded projects. It will seek to explore how and why to do R&D and how to further develop digital practice. Delegates will be able to experience, share and take away practical knowledge as well as network with speakers, the projects and digital experts.

You may be interested to participate if you are working in an arts/cultural organisation or business or independently at a delivery or strategic level, if you are already delivering digital development or thinking about it.

Chaired by journalist, writer and broadcaster Samira Ahmed and with a keynote delivered by Deborah Bull, Director, Culture at King’s College London. The programme will be based around four themes:

  • DATA led by Julie Freeman, Artist and Artist Associate, Open Data Institute
  • ACCESSIBILITY led by Jo Verrent, Independent Consultant and Senior Producer, Unlimited
  • MOBILE led by Tom Grinsted, Group Product Manager, Mobile and Devices
  • BUSINESS MODELS led by Nicola Yershon, Director of Innovation Solutions, Ogilvy

Delegates will also have the opportunity to sign up to learning sessions from a selection of masterclasses; 1:1s with mentors from Nesta’s Creative Business Mentor Network and sessions to try out the recently launched Digital Toolkit for Arts and Culture.

The event will start at 10:00 with registration from 09:15. You are also invited to join us for networking drinks on the terrace from 17:30 until 19:00.
