Art for arts sake…

October 22, 2008



I’ve been invited to participate in a panel discussion at the Arts Council ‘New Media New Audience’

It’s a one day working seminar on the arts, new media and broadcasting.


Being held in Dublin Castle on 25th November 2008.

New Technologies, Old Traditions

As we come to grips with social media, blogging, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr etc a new raft of technologies is being developed that will overtake these familiar platforms. What can the arts learn from the gaming and advertising industries (the primary developers of interactive technologies) and how do we want (if at all) to use these technologies in the next 10 to 20 years? More importantly how are these technologies impacting on the way in which artists are making work?

Moderator: Haydn Shaughnessy (Journalist, Gallery Owner)

Panellists: Fearghus O’Conchuir (Choreographer), Trevor Curran (Campbell Ryan Productions), Conor McGarrigle (Artist), Peter Fitzpatrick (Microsoft Ireland).
