The third Digital Media Network will be held in collaboration with the University of Winchester and Winchester’s excellent Digital Creative Hub. The evening will highlight some of the support available to Digital Creatives, both via regional organisations and through the Arts Council. As with each Network event we will also be celebrating the wealth of creative practises in the area, and will be joined by practitioners who are based in and around the city.
Nona Hunter, Relationship Manager: Creative Media at Arts Council England, will outline the Arts Council’s priorities around Creative media, digital and technology, and give some case studies of projects that ACE have funded and supported. Nona will also discuss some of the funding streams that are currently available, focusing on collaborations between the digital/tech sector and the arts and culture sector.
Cheryl Butler, Head of Culture for Eastleigh Borough Council will be speaking about the new Tech Hub in Eastleigh that’s due to open in the spring, and about the exciting opportunities that this will offer to artists and start-ups.
Renaud Clarke, Sales Director at Atelier Studios, will discuss Atelier Studio’s work and his career to date, and share his thoughts on digital marketing, as well as offer advice for practitioners in the early-mid stages of their careers who are working in Digital Media in Hampshire.
Recent graduate of the University of Winchester, Darren Woodiwiss, will talk about his career to date, working as a freelance app developer whilst studying, and since graduation as a lecturer at the University of Winchester. Darren’s work has included theTotal Theatre Edinburgh Festival Fringe App and projects for Cosmedics DW Windsor and Pippa Popins.
