Digital and Creative Media in the Midlands – Future Working?
Networking and Discussion Day

Join us for a networking and discussion event examining talks and testimonials surrounding creative new media works from artists, curators and academics in the digital arts field.
This is an opportunity to question how digital artists can work with organisations and local communities and identify what needs to be developed. Topics will include the opportunity for more artist training, funding for research into new technologies, identifying funding sources for new work and to look towards the future of digital engagement. 

The outcome of these conversations will be fed back to the attendees and speakers during the day, as well as in a live-feed, with the purpose to determine what key issues needs to be addressed, and to begin the formation of a new Creative Media Network for the Midlands that looks to support digital artists.
