A two day event exploring the future of creative technology

After five years of experimentation, Bristol + Bath Creative R+D invite you to come together to answer: what is the future of creative technology in Bristol and Bath?

Over two days in Bath (Thu 10 Nov at Bath Spa University's Locksbrook Campus) and Bristol (Fri 11 Nov at Watershed), you can test, play and be challenged by artists, technologists, academics and producers to imagine our collective futures, discuss how to build more equitable economies, and consider how we can really understand audiences.

From VR and app development; to immersive installations and unique soundscapes; the ideas emerging from Bristol+Bath Creative R+D are imbued with culture, compassion and courageous thinking.

Event details:

  • Thu 10 Nov, 10:00 - 18:00 (Bath Spa University's Locksbrook Campus, Bath, BA1 3EL)
  • Fri 11 Nov, 10:00 - 18:00 (Watershed, 1 Canons Road, Bristol, BS1 5TX)
  • The full schedule and programme will be announced soon.
