Creative Scotland, Waverley Gate, Edinburgh
We brought together leading policymakers, creative technologists and arts and culture practitioners to share experiences and discuss the importance of digital development for the arts in Scotland.
Digital – not simply the technology but the shifts in practice it has enabled – is changing the way that arts and culture organisations create content, reach audiences and generate new business models. Learning generated by digital development programmes are increasingly mission critical for third sector organisations and for a dynamic, distinctive and competitive social economy overall.
The event explored digital opportunities for innovation in culture, offered insights from arts organisations using technology to change their business and considered the contribution that technologists can make in terms of design, disruption and play.
