Sir Peter Bazalgette, Chair, Arts Council England said:
“We are delighted to be continuing our collaboration with Google for the Digital Utopias conference, and to be holding it in Hull, City of Culture 2017.”
Sowdens are gearing up for the Digital Utopias event this Tuesday at Hull Truck Theatre, Hull city centre. Digital Utopias is a one-day conference which will inspire and incite debate about how new technologies are enabling creativity across the arts.
We’re heading to the conference with my Jack from our digital arm and are looking forward to hearing how new technologies are enabling creativity, and linking up with other delegates and specialists in the field.
We’ve also been supporting our client KC Business who are supplying superfast Wi-Fi for the event. They’re also taking the cream phone boxes for an insight into the uniqueness of Hull and a chance to win a family ticket to The Deep (all you need to do is write on the graffiti wall what excites you about new technology and the arts).
Take advantage of their superfast Wi-Fi which will be available throughout the event, tweet us @sowdens @kc_business
Our day looks a little something like this:
10.30 -11.30 Showcase: Google Cultural Institute
13.00 -14.30 Clinic: Archiving and preserving in the digital age
14.45 -16.15 Activate the public space
16.45 -17.30 Showcase: Crafting Code (Art and Science)
18.00 -18.30 The Measures Taken
This is a fine initiative for the city, especially in the run-up to 2017 City of Culture. The Arts Council and Abandon Normal Devices have the support of Google for the project, whose platforms have revolutionised our technology landscape.
As we all know, digital technology is constantly evolving, and even as a provider of digital marketing and PR services, we always want to innovate so that we can offer clients the best service possible.
