We hope to make this event as participant driven, engaging and productive as possible, and unlike a traditional conference we want to avoid long presentations (presentation/provocations 15min MAX) and provide more time for discussion.

We programmed a number of provocations to help support debate.

This event is part of the Digital Making in the Curriculum project, led by CCW Learning, Teaching & Enhancement (CCW-LTE) at Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges of Arts, UAL.

CCW LTE support the Digital Maker Collective a group of artists, designers, staff and students from the University of the Arts London (UAL) who explore emerging digital technologies in arts, education, society and the creative industries.
