Treasure or trash? Artistic freedom and quality control in a digital age

Conference exploring and discussing the social and artistic impact of the digital global community. Free to attend but booking required.

The future is digital. Traditional distribution channels are changing, and whilst this offers unprecedented opportunities for artists and creators it also raises issues around censorship, cultural identity, security and quality control.  If the gatekeepers are removed and artists, writers and musicians can be their own distributors, who makes judgements about quality?  Should anyone? Or should we embrace an artistic and social free for all?

This event will be of interest to artists, performers, musicians, writers, entrepreneurs, academics, students, philosophers and social commentators.

Key speaker Chris Meade, Director of if:book UK

The event runs from 10am - 3.30pm. Free to attend but booking required. Contact jane.seaman@canterbury.ac.uk for more details.
