Connecting Cities - Worldwide Urban Media Showcases I

(2014-05-28) Connecting Cities - Worldwide Urban Media Showcases I

Phi Centre


International experts will give short and dynamic presentations of urban media manifestations from around the world, discussing not only how their different infrastructures integrate into the urban space, but also which types of content they present and what reactions they elicit from citizens. The aim of this worldwide overview is to compare different strategies for a sustainable and meaningful use of urban media in different cultural contexts.

The first group brings together experts, who usually work with permanent media infrastructures in public spaces:
Nerea Calvillo, Curator at Medialab-Prado Madrid (ES)
Mikaël Charpin, Director of the Lightning Plan at Quartier des spectacles Partnership (CA)
Veronika Pauser, Project Coordinator at Ars Electronica Futurelab Linz (AT)
Matt Jones, Program Manager of Federation Square Melbourne (AU)
Mike Stubbs, Director of FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) Liverpool (UK)
Marilia Pasculli, Artistic Director of Verve Cultural Sao Paulo (BR)

All symposium activities take place in English.
