Art of Digital London (AoDL) is a public event set up to discuss the influence that the digital is having on cultural engagement. Through AoDL we research how arts organisations are responding to the prevalence of digital use, looking at the tools and practices that are used in the creation, management and distribution of artistic programming.

We centre each event around a particular topic. In advance, we write an event description that contextualises the discussion and acts as a piece of condensed research. On the night, we invite a panel of experts and practitioners to present their projects, thoughts and ideas. This is followed by a Q&A and group discussion. We record all presentations and make them available online after each event as an additional resource.

We choose topics that we think are relevant to those working in the arts, and in the spirit of action research these are often issues we have come across in our work that require a solution. Previous areas discussed have include; digital copyright, cultural open data, arts video networks, digital project management, social media and distributed storytelling. Speakers have come from a wide variety of cultural organisations, digital agencies and tech companies - including Caper, Channel 4, Culture Grid, Kaltura, Made Media, National Archives, Sadler’s Wells, Tate and Vimeo.

AoDL is a great way to meet peers in tech/arts. We are not experts, just very curious, and want to create a friendly platform where everyone is welcome and everyone can learn something.

Each event takes place at The Photographers’ Gallery, and is co-organised by Jo Healy and Caroline Heron.
