Description

Electric Works Sheffield
1st March 2019
10am - 2pm

IVE are launching a digital innovation session with the hopes of exposing Arts & Culture organisations to the potential digital might offer in regards to engaging young people with arts and culture in a meaningful way. The day should be a fantastic opportunity to make connections with the digital sector, hear the input of young people, and hopefully inspire you to shape your digital objectives into something really valuable and worthwhile for young people.

The day will be split into 2 sessions:

Morning session: A Digital showcase session to inspire Arts & Culture Organisations

We will be showcasing great examples of digital innovation and host a ‘playground’ to inspire everyone in the room with possibilities.

After Lunch: An Open Space Session

In the afternoon, everyone will be invited to an open space format with the digital representatives where we will discuss the experiences digital gives their audiences, and how their approaches could benefit each organisation. There will be a big focus around ‘thinking outside the box’and lots of opportunity to ask questions.

There will also be a group of young people invited to get involved in both sessions as equal partners, in the hopes of further understanding how young people engage with the arts, and what grabs their attention from a digital perspective.

Digital representatives and special guests include: Emma Bearman (Chief Officer for Play, and founder of Playful Anywhere) Kisha Bradley (of Bright Box Makerspace), Interplay Theatre (Showcasing their VR project 'conductor') Adam Clarke (Minecraft and Games) Cyclops Pedal Power CIC (STEAM plus Sustainability), Leeds Libraries, Tanya Fish, Head of Education & Engagement Pimoroni, and more.
