The Art of the Possible: Arts and Tech Birmingham

27/10/2016 @ 12:30 - 15:00 BST

With support from Arts Council England, we have been scoping the potential for a digital arts incubator to be based at iCentrum. Through mapping arts and tech nationally, understanding what artists need and want through co-design sessions, and visiting examples of best practice, we will share our learnings and findings in an attempt to add to collective knowledge in this area. We’ll be launching our proposed plans for an arts and tech incubator in 2017 and we will explain how we will drive innovation in the region through supporting new talent.

The event will include a comment from Gary Topp, Director of Culture Central on how this feeds into the wider ‘young, diverse and digital’ agenda in the Greater Birmingham region. Be inspired by digital performance art from Antonio Roberts (previously worked with MTV, ODI and is a fellow at BOM Lab). Hear from Birmingham Children’s Hospital around their ideas for digital input into The Big Sleuth in 2017. There will be optional workshops at the event with Virgin Start Up*.
