Deadline: 30 April 2017
Glens Centre, Manorhamilton, County Leitrim
Conference takes place on 14 and 15 October 2017.
This conference looks at the cultural impacts of the emerging digital society – a society in which human relations are dependent on digital technology. These technologies are providing new challenges and opportunities for artists, but also for people in general, who need their artists to help them understand its impacts and to preserve cultural identity in the face of these profound changes.
Issues the conference hopes to explore include authorship, memory, automation, copyright and commodification, politics and ideology. The conference seeks to bring together artists, people in creative industries, the tech sector, higher education, and people involved in the formulation of arts policy in Ireland.
We are looking for people that can make an engaging contribution to this debate – either through simple presentations/lectures, or something more interactive.
