2nd Community-Powered Digital Transformations event
20 April 2012
The British Library, London
(Organised by University of Westminster)
Digital transformations mean that cultural and media organisations now find themselves in a new environment in which communities of participants interact to create, curate, organise and support cultural experiences.
This is the second in a series of AHRC-funded events where practitioners and researchers will come together to consider innovative practices, and develop new ideas together. (All welcome – you do not need to have come to the first one!).
This workshop will consider:
- How can communities create new business relationships which work towards sustaining the community, rather than sustaining any given business model or relationship?
- How do we deal with the profound challenges to ownership rights across the cultural industries, which have been created by digital transformations in the roles and relationships of creators, curators, sponsors and audiences?
- Robert Waddilove, Across The Pond/Google
- Rachel Marshall, Licensing manager, The British Library
- Chris Speed, University of Edinburgh
- James Bennett, Royal Holloway
- Paul Dwyer, University of Westminster
The day will involve presentations, discussions, and smaller-group conversations.
