Keynote Speakers: Jonathan Dovey (University of the West of England); Ruth McElroy (University of South Wales)
Registration is now open for our Creativity in the Digital Age: Remixes, Remediations, Realignments Symposium.
Cardiff University’s Digital Cultures Network is delighted to announce its third Symposium, which focuses on the creative arts in the digital age. The creative industries are a major contributor to the cultural and economic capital of the UK, constituting a field of rapid expansion and innovation. In this context, we consider how digital practices such as remixing and remediation are themselves realigning what we understand ‘creativity’ to mean, resulting in fruitful but also challenging collisions. While academic research is engaging with emergent practices in equally exciting and revealing ways, much remains to be done. Of interest are the intersections between the two fields, which are stimulating creative/critical approaches to collaborative practice, suggesting new roles that universities can play.
Confirmed speakers include: Victoria Anderson, Katie Brown, Jon Dovey, Holly Furneaux, Ben Gwalchmai, Ruth McElroy, David Millard, Janire Najera, Shane Nickels, Caitriona Noonan, Sara Pepper and Matt Wright.
Registration is free for delegates but places are limited. The deadline for registration is 20 May 2017. Please register on Eventbrite: https://creativity-digital-age.eventbrite.co.uk.
