Tate Exchange Event March 2020

Uni to Unicorns Event 3-8 March 2020

Unpack the creative power of the tech industries. Help us create a new space where the art world meets the tech world.

Join the University of the Arts, UAL Digital Maker Collective and guests from the creative and tech industries. Help us transform the Tate Exchange into an open and accessible ‘Test Bed' for creative tech. A place for all to explore, question and learn about the world of tech business and future technologies.

The UK is third in the world for producing successful tech companies and unicorns which are privately-owned tech companies valued at over $1bn. UAL are at the centre of this tech revolution, yet the gap between tech business/giants and everyday society is continually widening. How do we reconcile this gap and bring the tech world into arts, but equally important, how do we bring arts creatives into the world of tech?

What responsibility do the arts have in restoring trust and empowering society to stake its claim in this new land of opportunity and in defining the language of emerging technologies?

See the new event website: http://uni2unicorns.info

Full event programme including collaborators and guests contributions will be regularly updated on the event website.

We are looking to collaborate with some amazing tech organisations, and are currently working on exploring three main themes:

  • Creative Data, Deepfakes: How do creatives & public better understand this tech?
  • Smart Mobility and City: From self driving cars to internet of things
  • Spatial Computing: Virtual, Augmented & extended reality, new immersive

Please look into all the above potential collaborators, and email [email protected] if you are interested to find out more about potential related projects/work ideas in progress.
