UCL's Digital Festival: Digifest
15 July 2014
What is Digifest?
UCL Digifest will be a festival of all things digital on the 10th-14th November. We do not want this to become another boring sit and listen event which is why we are looking for ideas and session submissions that are interactive (workshops, hacks, discussions, demos). All things digital? Yes, it’s a bit vague at the moment – it’s still evolving.
Here are a few examples of ways you can get involved:
● Do you have a digital skill or idea
that other people would find helpful?
● What online tools or apps could you teach others about?
● Are you passionate about a particular digital issue that you could debate till the cows come home?
● Do you have a cool digital project to show off that would make a great discussion point?
To kick things off, we gathered for an initial brainstorming day in April. The day generated much excitement and 139 ideas of what we should do with “digifest”. The ideas ranged from mobile film making and productivity tools to coding and robot races. We got a really broad spectrum of interests and suggestions.
These are the main themes we identified from the 139 ideas:
1. Activism | Politics | Ethics | Citizenship | Privacy | Security
2. Making | Sharing | Collaboration | Creative Commons
3. Identity | Professionalism | Footprint
4. Learning Technology | Future University
We aim to make the festival as hands on as possible and organise it as a 50:50 partnership between students and staff: part unconference, part hackfest, part showcase, part online course. It’s an organically growing beast. Much of the final content will depend on community enthusiasm and your participation. We need to hear more from you students, it is your festival too and this is your chance to really make something of it!
How can I contribute?
We have been using Google+
to keep the conversation going. It’s where
you can find photos and notes from the April
session, too. If you would like to be part of the conversation and help us create an awesome
festival, please join the community and submit your ideas.
If you would like a hand in shaping Digifest in person please come to our next community meeting to discuss ideas you would like to see happen at the festival, all are welcome. The meeting will be on the 23rd of July between 14.00 16.30 at Taviton 432.
