Dissemination Conference
Artistic creation through digital tools
Location: Red Room

VIDEO DOCUMENTATION: Watch the lectures from the dissemination conference online here.

Last year IAC and Region Skåne realised an open call ‘The potential of digitalisation for new artistic methods, techniques and forms of expression’, to improve the conditions for artistic creation through technical solutions. Taking departure in the granted projects, Region Skåne and IAC are now happy to invite you to the Dissemination Conference at IAC, on the 9th of December.

The conference will address questions such as how to collaborate on artistic development through streamed media, how to reinforce a creative “present moment” using sensors, avatars and biological modulation of music data, and how this can be used to improve conditions for inclusion and accessibility. The afternoon will focus on creative artistic development through software MaxMSP, how the role of interaction in art contexts can open up new ways of thinking about audience and how soundwalks can be used as a tool for exploring drama in public space.

The Dissemination Conference is an opportunity to learn more about experiences and knowledges gained from the projects. To get a deeper understanding on the role of Virtual Reality technologies for participatory performance, and scientific perspectives on the human mind in relation to the use of computational and artificial intelligence for expanded creativity, we are also very happy to welcome Dr Lisa May Thomas and Juan Sebastian Vassallo to lecture and participate in the discussions during the day.
