Beta Society

The Beta Society aims to explore socially engaged practice & social inclusion through a digital lens, provoking debate around the pervasive nature of digital technology and the positive & negative impacts on society. 

Join the Digital Maker Collective and our community partners to campaign for a Beta Society and help us to recalibrate our digital lives through citizen centered innovation. The collective is investigating the theme of emergent futures, looking at the impact of digital technological change on our everyday lives, social mobility and local communities, and issues surrounding access, diversity and inequality in the arts and creative education.

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

They will also be looking at methods for 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 representing themselves in a different location, environment and context like Tate Exchange or University of the Arts London.
