An unmissable networking opportunity for leaders in art, academia, industry, regional development, research and policy fields.
DIFFRACTION is bringing together representatives from the arts and industry sectors, leaders in the field of cross-disciplinary innovation from the UK and abroad, to present case studies of previous projects, debate challenges and identify opportunities for collaborations in the future.
DIFFRACTION will look backwards, sideways and fowards at the various ways in which artists interact with practitioners from different environments and disciplines in the common interest of innovation.
ITEM, FACT's highly successful pilot research and development programme for the exploration and development of new media tools for exhibition and exposition, will disseminate its findings and feature as case study for the conference. ITEM will showcase and present the commissioned research and launch a new publication, which features detailed reports and documentation about each of the ten projects supported to date. Participants, including artists and representatives from the technology and media companies, which facilitated the projects, will describe the experience and results of their collaborative research.
