REINVENTING THE ARTS THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
An evening with Brian Newman
October 28, 2010
Consultant Brian Newman surveys key changes in the arts due to digital technology, and gives practical advice for using new technology for art making, dissemination of one’s work and building a sustainable career.
• How has culture changed, past and present, as a result of technology?
• What are the new tools artists can use to experiment and put forth their vision?
• What is transmedia, and how might it be used by filmmakers and other artists?
• How have artists built sustainable careers, selling through social media?
• What have been successful strategies for the use of these new tools?
Most importantly, this seminar argues that artists must harness new technology so that they shape the future of our field, instead of it being shaped for them.
