Event description

Description

From virtual reality and artificial intelligence to bitcoin and blockchain, we spend a lot of time discussing how emerging technologies will disrupt our everyday world. However, these technologies are often applied in surprising and unanticipated ways by artists across different artforms. Musicians have found blockchain to be a powerful tool to manage royalties and artists are using virtual reality and other game systems to turn the concept of audience upside down.

How are visual artists using VR to interrogate challenging or even traumatic experiences? How are musicians benefitting from bitcoin or using blockchain to overcome the challenge of tracking royalties? How are the arts leveraging emerging technologies to their benefit?

During this event, our panelists will talk about how different artforms are applying emerging technologies and explore ways that these practices can be nurtured and facilitated.
