BBC Connected Studio for the Scottish Independence Referendum
Tuesday, 17 September 2013 from 08:30 to 19:30 (BST)
Glasgow, United Kingdom
The Connected Studio for the Scottish Independence Referendum will be held at BBC Scotland's Headquarters in Glasgow on Tuesday the 17th September 2013, a year and a day ahead of the date of the Referendum on Scottish Independence.
Connected Studio is a new approach by the BBC to deliver innovation across BBC Future Media. We’re looking for digital agencies, technology start-ups and individual designers and developers, production companies and creative media individuals (including BBC staff) who want to submit and develop ideas for innovative features and formats.
This is an opportunity to participate in a Connected Studio event to be held in Glasgow, get involved and work closely with BBC experts to help shape BBC digital media output for 2014 and beyond. The event will have a judging panel, roaming experts and provide regular Connected Studio facilities such as Speakers’ Corner and audience feedback to attendees. Teams will be able to pitch their ideas at the end of the day, and all participants will be able to watch all of the pitches.
The Referendum on Scottish Independence offers 16 and 17 year olds in Scotland an opportunity to vote for the first time, The BBC is committed to helping all audiences understand the issues surrounding the debate on Scotland's future. Given traditional coverage of politics can sometimes be perceived, particularly by younger audiences, as complicated and not relevant to them, the BBC is looking for new ways of communicating with audiences in ways which empower them to make an informed choice for the referendum.
