Nesta, Arts Council England and the Arts & Humanities Research Council held an event designed to share the learning from the funded projects of the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts.
The day, chaired by journalist, author and broadcaster Rosie Millard and featuring a keynote from Deborah Bull, Director of Culture at King's College London, included speakers, presentations, demonstrations and performances by some of the funded projects. It explored how and why to do R&D and how to further develop digital practice. Delegates were able to experience, share and take away practical knowledge as well as network with speakers, the projects and digital experts.
