An Exploration of Culture in a Digital Society

Memory, authorship, identity, productivity, privacy and consumption are all changing. The digital society is transforming our traditional relationship to these concepts, enhancing some and alienating others.

Can artists help us navigate and respond to this new reality?

Is society even looking to artists to help make sense of the transformation? Or has the Digital Age moved beyond a need for artists? Are we not all artists now? Are machines and algorithms our artists and arbiters of taste?

How will we find meaning in this brave new world?

Digital Transformations brings together thought leaders in the arts, in business and technology, education and journalism to share their views on the digital society and the meaning and value of the arts in such a society. It is a showcase for artists who have begun to address these issues in both traditional and non-traditional forms.

Find out what the digital society really is from the people that are making it happen.

Meet, listen to and talk with artists who are making the digital society a part of their work.

Find out the ways in which creativity is currency in a digital society.

Explore the future of creativity with artists, journalists, publishers, policy makers, educators and technologists.

Who is this conference for?

The conference is designed to attract artists, creative industry workers, technologists, people involved in arts infrastructure (at a policy level to volunteers), and anyone who enjoys and values the arts and culture.
