We present the first 2 day symposium in a 2 year series, in an AHRC
funded Collaborative Research Training project on research training,
digital media art and curating. This training initiative is a
collaboration between Culture Lab Newcastle University, and CRUMB
University of Sunderland.
The aim of the series is to bring together post-graduate students of
digital media art practice and curating with specialists in the field
in order to share research methodologies and enhance the level of cross
disciplinary understanding. We seek to integrate the specialist
methodologies of digital media into the wider fields of arts and
We bring to the table the complete lifecycle of digital media art, from
education to production to dissemination, exhibition and
interpretation. This holistic approach is of fundamental importance now
that digital media art is increasingly accepted in a broader range of
traditional cultural, institutional, and gallery contexts.
The programme will include presentations by both professional
specialists and post-graduate students. Outreach will focus on bringing
students, practitioners, and curators into dialogue to share
methodologies, knowledge, and experience.
