This symposium will be the third in the series, the original being developed at QUT in Brisbane and the second in June 2015, held at UNSW Art & Design. This iteration of the series will also act as pre-event for MAB16. The symposium provocation: What kinds of public spaces are made by creative intervention? What kinds of public spaces are made without creative intervention? What do these interventions tell us about public space? Digital Publics brings together the ideas, the hands and the technologies that redistribute spatial encounters, redefining the public that they seek to engage. The symposium is being developed by UTV in conjunction with Federation Square and Pause Festival and is curated and moderated by Esther Anatolitis, Director of Regional Arts Victoria.
X-Communicate Symposium – Vivid Sydney 2015
✗Communicate is a symposium of shared experiences and aspirations presented by a network of individuals, organisations and research institutes working in the evolving public facing field of urban screens and digital interfaces. This event was conceived and developed entirely by the team at UTV/Audience and is being delivered to begin the promotion of the MAB16 event for our academic partners. ✗Communicate will bring together a spectrum of voices from within our network across the local, national digital/new media, community engagement and media architecture sectors. ✗Communicate’s underlying vision/proposition is to build awareness across the sectors of digital placemaking in the digital age, community engagement and creative buildings or smart city developments.
