Digital Utopias Conference: Disruptive Innovation Panel

Digital Utopias was a one-day conference which inspired and sparked debate about how new technologies are enabling creativity across the arts (Hull, UK, 20 January 2015).
In this session, the panel unpick alternative models of “innovation” through examining production models and their cultural value. Interdisciplinary artistic practice can create new platforms, resources and art forms, but what are the benefits to artistic practice and how can cultural appropriation be avoided?

Led by Jose Luis de Vicente (curator and researcher) with Tatiana Bazzichelli (Director of the Disruption Network Lab), Memo Akten (Artist), Lynn Scarff (Programme Director of The Science Gallery).

This debate was recorded at Digital Utopias at Hull Truck Theatre: an Arts Council event curated by Abandon Normal Devices as a trailblazer event for Hull City of Culture 2017, bringing together a range of Arts Council partners including The Space, AHRC and The British Council as well as artists and cultural practitioners from across the UK and beyond.
