Call for Creative Technologists – Ideas Lab with King’s Cultural Institute

IdeasLabKing’s Cultural Institute and Caper are looking for creative technologists to take part in our Arts and the Digital Ideas Lab, as part of KCI’s Creative Futures programme.

The Ideas Lab takes place on Thursday 23 May, at King’s Anatomy Museum, from 9.30am to 5.30pm, followed by drinks.

This Ideas Lab will bring together leading arts and cultural organisations with academic researchers and creative technologists to debate, discover and experiment.

Technologists will benefit from opportunities such as networking and collaborating with cultural organisations, insight into the needs and opportunities around working with arts and culture, and a view of current academic research.

The Lab will conclude with the opportunity for teams to pitch to a selection panel to win one of three £2,500 bursaries, to turn ideas into a working digital prototype.

The event is free, but places are limited, and you’ll need to apply to take part. You must be a designer, software developer, user experience expert or a content specialist.

To register your interest in attending the event please email by 10am on Tue 14 May with:
– a short description of the work you or your organisation do
– why you have an interest in working with cultural organisations
– what you hope to get out of the Ideas Lab

For independent technologists, we have a small number of £400 bursaries available to cover your time – please let us know if you wish to be considered for this.

We hope this event will serve as a creative catalyst for new ideas, will enable new collaborations and will seed approaches to and thinking around Arts and the Digital.
