Event Details

Come and meet some great people with interests in the creative industries and digital media. Geek out, talk, hear some great speakers, music, beer – FREE. If the weather is nice you can even sit outside in the patio area.

What is SxSC?

SxSC is an ad hoc informal gathering aimed at people in the creative industries/digital media who want to share their knowledge and learn about new developments.  It is an intense event with a series of discussions, demos, participation and interaction from attendees.

You can be part of it – you can offer a talk, or a demo in one of the informal slots, or just come along and watch, talk to people, demonstrate kit informally in the bar area – it’s up to you – the key word here is INTERACTION.

The idea is to get people talking and build up an informal network in the region, where beginners and experts can learn from each other, and make new connections – no boundaries, as long as you’re broadly in line with the overall theme.

We will be involving participants in designing the event right from the outset, so if you have suggestions for topics for the informal sessions, or speakers, or ideas for a hacking task or contest, let us know – we’ll do our best to accommodate, subject to demand, and fit.

Anyone can attend, as long as you have an interest in developing new technology and new user  applications with a Creative Industries/Digital Media flavour, including (but not restricted to):
