The Secrets of Successful Collaboration
Wednesday, May 30, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
This session is produced by Unthinkable Consulting and the Barbican Centre. It's for digital media practitioners and innovators from all sectors interested in the practice of collaboration. Using real examples from Shoreditch and further afield, we’ll take you on an entertaining, informative and interactive journey. Here’s a sneaky preview of what we have in mind:
After the usual introductions and scene-setting from us, we’ll be having 3 conversations with partners from 3 very different kinds of collaboration. The common thread is digital, but the collaborations themselves range from purely commercial through to creative practice and the partners from large corporations to Shoreditch-based start ups. The funding models are equally diverse. The conversations will address some of the thorny issues around collaboration such as why collaborate; when should you do it and when shouldn’t you; how you go about finding partners; what framework and rules do you need; what are the business models for collaboration and what tools work best? There will be plenty of time for Q&A both during the event and over a glass of wine afterwards.
Our speakers include:
Nikhil Shah, Mixcloud
Daniel Nathan, Totally Radio
Anno Mitchell , We Are Friday
Peter Higgin & Felix Barrett, Punchdrunk
Prof. Tod Machover, MIT Media Lab
We’re always keen to help make connections between potential collaborators, so the session will end with an informal opportunity for attendees to find collaborators for projects and hear about projects looking for collaborators.
Places are limited so we recommend you book early.
We look forward to seeing you there.
