Taking place on Friday 10 June at Warwick Arts Centre, the Random String Symposium will explore the latest thinking in interactive and networked technologies in art. It is aimed at artists and arts professionals from any discipline who have an interest in using technology in their work, regardless of their expertise.
As well as keynotes, there will be Q&A sessions with artists including Juneau Projects, Antonio Roberts, Entropika Lab and Nikki Pugh, a showcase of interactive and networked work and a series of panel discussions - including a discussion on programming and commissioning digital work chaired by Sarah Ellis, Head of Digital Development at the Royal Shakespeare Company, who leads on their groundbreaking artistic digital initiatives.
In addition to the Symposium, a one day microFestival exploring technology in art takes place in Coventry on 10-11 June. A programme of free hands-on activities and installations for all ages will take place in the City Arcade and the recently opened FabLab Coventry.
