The Culture Capital Exchange

Event Details

8th July, 2016
14:30 - 18:00
Ravensbourne University, Room 801

The Crafts Council and The Culture Capital Exchange are delighted to invite you to MakeRobotTech. An event for makers, artists, researchers, scientists, technologists and engineers to discuss common research and practice relating to applied robotics. We strive to provide a platform to come together and explore current applications, future considerations and sector crossovers in working with, on or against robots.

Potential topics to be discussed include:

  • The value of collaboration for industries and how the fusion of craft skills, technology and entrepreneurship promotes innovation in other sectors.
  • Applied robotics in making, art and design including cross-disciplinary applications in architecture, manufacturing, biotech and other creative sectors.
  • Open-source robot technology is now widely accessible. How are artists and makers building, hacking, performing with or avoiding robots?
  • What is the role of robotics within the Creative and Cultural Industries? Are there advantageous spillovers in the humanities?

Ideas Labs are TCCE’s quarterly gatherings open to academics and creative artists and entrepreneurs, limited to around 30 attendees. They offer brainstorming, networking and collaborative opportunities, sparked by provocations addressed by selected chairs. MakeRobotTech will be chaired by Professor in Design Nobuoki Ohtani, Queen Mary, artist Guy Bar Amotz and Producer of Playable City Hilary O’Shaughnessy, Watershed. This Ideas Lab forms part of the Crafts Council’s innovation programme. Topics explored at the event will contribute towards Make:Shift, a biennial conference exploring making, science, technology and engineering at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, 10-11 November 2016.  

Registration will be open until July 5th.
