Treasure Or Trash? – Artistic Freedom In A Digital Age – Free Conference on 20th September 2012 – Folkestone

(CC BY-NC 2.0) by naoyafujii

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,
ownership 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. 

Venue: University Centre Folkestone 

FREE to attend but booking required – contact Jane Seaman – jane.seaman@canterbury.ac.uk

Key speaker Chris Meade, writer and Director of if:book UK

Lecturer at Canterbury Christchurch University), Shane Record (visual

Reauthoring, and others to be confirmed.
