When Culture Met Digital at Interface 2013

Brighton played host to a unique event on 29th January, when Wired Sussex teamed up with the Shakespeare’s Globe to deliver Interface 2013, bringing the UK’s top arts & cultural organisations to Brighton to meet with some of the most creative and innovative talent the city has to offer. 

We were really pleased to have been able to offer our members a rare opportunity to meet with the Shakespeare's Globe, the Barbican, the National Theatre, the Tate, the Royal Albert Hall, the Imperial War Museum, the Unicorn TheatrePenguin Books, the V & A and the Rambert Dance Company and shout about what they do.

You can find out a bit more information on the Interface initiative, including what these organisations were looking to get out of the event on our previous blog post here.

Following curated one to one meetings, Phil chaired a panel discussion, with representatives from each of the cultural organisations.  Digital companies were asked to tweet their questions for the panel throughout the day, generating some interesting conversations and valuable insights as to what the key challenges and opportunities are for such organisations engaging with digital.

Check out some of the top tweets of the day and the key areas of conversation here.

Overall, there was lots of positive feedback from the event from which we’ll hopefully see the start of some long lasting working relationships.

For more of the conversation, check out #Interface2013.  You can see pictures from the event on our Facebook page here.

We hope to be able to offer more events like this in the future, so feel free to let us know your thoughts!
