Panel Collaboration, Creativity and Community in the Digital World

The digital world calls for new thinking and new ways of working together. Its challenges affect everyone - artists, performing arts organisations, broadcasters and distributers alike. This session will tackle these challenges head on, with new best-practice examples and new creative ideas from three leading practitioners in the field of digital and the performing arts. The panel examines the following questions:


  • What does it mean to realise a legacy art form and maintain artistic excellence in a digital world?
  • How can digital engagement help to keep artists and art forms relevant and fresh?
  • How do we build community and connection in a noisy world?

This panel will provide some possible answers and strategies to add to your digital tool kit!
