Date: Wednesday 31st January 2007
Time: 6pm to 9pm

Outline:

The third seminar in the Northern Bloc seminar series will continue the investigation into ‘collaborative knowledge development’ to focus on the process of collaboration itself.

Collaboration is a key part of almost all creative processes, but is relatively absent from contemporary discussion which often prioritises a view of the creative practitioner working in isolation. This seminar will look a variety of forms of collaboration in the sphere of creative technology including: artists who have developed their practice from the outset as a partnership; practitioners for whom collaboration with members of the public is an integral part of their practice and the ‘experience’ designer whose practice necessitates an ability to move between and negotiate with a wide range of professionals in both the commercial and non-commercial spheres.

The seminar will be followed by refreshments and a chance to network with other practitioners in the area.

A simultaneous translation service will be provided.
