‘In the context of increasing democratisation of cultural assets, how might we exploit the opportunities of creative co-production, repurposing and innovation?’

Our next Collider is in association with The National Galleries of Scotland where we will bring together design thinking, technology solutions and heritage professionals to explore themes such as  ‘non-curated / moderated’ content on museum platforms; the challenges of co-production and user generated content in the cultural sector; ethics and values of big data in cultural and heritage centres and the opportunities  and dialogues that could be explored through data capture.

We will be inspired by talks from Jen Ross (University of Edinburgh, Digital Education), Ewa Luger (former Microsoft Research, now Design Informatics), Neil Robertson (Locomotion Scotland, independent travel blogger) and Christopher Ganley (National Galleries of Scotland, Digital Content and Design Manager).

A collider is a conceptual design event, bringing together computational thinking and design thinking, to pull informaticians together with designers, and problem holders. The first part of the Collider sets the scene before breaking out in to workshop sessions
