Please note we are holding our Lunchtime Talks online only for now - we are looking forward to seeing you in the building again soon.

This talk will be BSL Interpreted.

Over the past year we've been running a programme called Amplified Publishing through our Bristol and Bath creative industries programme. We've had a cohort of 10 researchers from the creative industries and academia working with industry partners across multiple sectors, from visual arts, zines, music, games, VR/AR and machine learning. In addition we've funded three ground-breaking prototype projects all aimed at helping creators make work and find new audiences. What have we learned from this process? In a tech world dominated by false information, walled gardens, and filter bubbles, how can technology create positive change for artists and makers? In this talk Kate Pullinger will explore some of the findings from the project and talk about her hopes for the future of this work.
