Innovation Birmingham, Beatfreeks and Doink have been scoping the potential for a digital arts incubator to be based at the Innovation Birmingham Campus's iCentrum building. With support from Arts Council England, we have been mapping arts and tech nationally, understanding what artists need and want through co-design sessions, and visiting examples of best practice, we will share our learnings and findings in an attempt to add to collective knowledge in this area. We'll be launching our proposed plans for an arts and tech incubator in 2017 and we will explain how we will drive innovation in the region through supporting new talent.
The event will include a comment from Gary Topp on how this feeds into the wider 'young, diverse and digital' agenda in the Greater Birmingham region as well as workshops with Virgin Start Up*. Be inspired by digital performance art and hear from Birmingham Children's Hospital on their ideas for digital input into The Big Sleuth in 2017.
