Why you should attend
Why this conference now?
Our dramatically changing society has been profoundly influenced by digital culture and technologies. This shift is far more profound than people’s compulsive mobile usage – it’s about changes to our identity, our wellbeing, the information we consume, the democracy we participate in and the networks and communities we connect with.
There are serious questions about truth and authenticity online and we all need to consider what role we can plan in a more socially responsible and human web.
If you work for an arts or heritage organisation, how relevant is your work to people’s lives in an increasingly online world, right now and in the future?
Who is the Let’s Get Real conference for – and how will it help you?
This conference is for everyone interested in exploring different ways cultural organisations can respond to changing times in our society and our local communities driven by technology and digital culture.
The conference will help people in specific roles in the following ways:
Are you a CEO, Director, Trustee or any other leader charged with strategically navigating your arts or heritage organisation? Come along and learn from inspiring projects inside the cultural sector and beyond: you’ll discover how to understand the potential strategic and social value of your digital work, develop new partnerships and discover ways to make a deeper impact.
Are you in a learning or community-facing role?
Discover new, digitally-influenced ways to gather and engage communities around important issues, and take part in a day that recognises the importance of your experience and expertise in shaping how organisations respond to change.
Do you work in a digital role?
If you have significant responsibility for digital work, you’ll discover some of the latest thinking and best practice around digital and values-led practice, inspiring you to connect and explain what you do in relation to your organisation’s core purpose.
Do you work in programming, events or a curatorial role?
Join us to discover practical approaches and inspiring ideas to help you creatively engage your audiences online with current social issues.
