Intersections in Sustainability: new avenues through art and technology
6-9pm November 6th 2008
The Hub, King’s Cross
An evening to challenge the way we perceive art, technology and innovation.
In a world which is running out of resources, find out how the technological world is being re-imagined and recycled. Meet the artists and innovators who are pushing the paradigm of ‘sustainability’ in their products and creations.
Hear from entrepreneurs breaking common perceptions by resurrecting old materials to create dynamic new uses, functions and possibilities.
Topics our speakers will address include:
•how software, hardware and creative thinking are benefiting our community – from local to global
•creative applications of eco-media projects, particularly as they contribute to ‘social telephony’.
•how artists and creatives can address issues of sustainability and recycling while empowering themselves at the same time
