Event Details

Create NSW presents Digital Disruptors, a timely conversation with a panel of innovators from across the creative industries, moderated by award-winning creative with a passion for technology, Claire Marshall who will tackle questions around the ever shifting intersection between technology and creativity. The march towards digitisation is unrelenting and continues to redefine how society interacts and participates in arts, screen and cultural activities.

Streaming services have entirely changed the way people access and consume media, leaving many traditional players fighting to remain relevant. But arguably the most interesting shifts in recent times have occurred within more traditional arts practice. Access through digital platforms and the use of new mediums such as VR and AR are having a significant impact on how performing artists, visual artists, screen practitioners, museums, galleries and cultural organisations think about presenting their works.

The panel comprised of app developers Keith Sue (Six8) and Mikaela Jade (Indigital), as well as Kate Armstrong Smith (Playwave) and Chantal Abouchar (The Studio)  will shed light on current technological trends, and offer valuable insights into how creative practitioners can thrive in the face of the digital invasion.
