How can we use digital technology to better enable positive change for social mobility and greater accessibility to education and work? 

Themes explored include:

Emergent Futures:

  • Rapid movement and impact of digital technological change on our everyday lives and local communities.
  • Access, diversity and inequality in arts & creative education, creative sector and the tech industries. 

Hyperlocal Collaboration:

  • How do we create a neutral space that can avoid structured mandates and support true collaboration and social inclusion?
  • What challenges are there for local communities in moving into and/or representing itself in a different location, environment & context like Tate Exchange and University of the Arts London.
  • Borderless Movement, how can we explore virtual movement and collaboration through immersive experimentation & collaboration?
