Together we will explore how new & emerging technologies can collaboratively innovate with creatives and artists to develop new dimensions for expression or technologies to be used in live performance and related art forms.
The day is being curated in order to:
- Facilitate knowledge exchange and discussion between the different groups on the day, informing everyone's practice.
- Identify opportunities for artists, technologists and academic engineers to collaborate in technology and artistic research or innovation for performance.
- Identify potential ideas and partnerships for future funding proposals.
