BCU: Disruptive Spaces Seminar
March 24th 2015, 10:00 am - 4:30 pmFree
As part of Birmingham Digital Week, we are hosting a one day event all about the future of cities and what is making the new creative economy tick.
Birmingham is a city buzzing with imagination and experimentation. Its emerging creative and technology networks contribute not only to the city’s efficiency and sustainability; they are also what make Brum so unpredictable and full of possibility.
Engage with what’s going on in the city right now, through a series of debates, provocative discussions and, in the true spirit of disruption, playful participation. We will also introduce our new upcoming monthly MakerMonday series!
The most persuasive means of engagement is to get everyone ‘taking part’ and we hope to get you fully involved in co-creation and collaboration. If you’re a creative, technologist, designer, maker, doer, scientist, academic, policy maker or visionary with a passion to co-design and experiment, this event is most definitely for you. We can’t wait to see you sharing your ideas and inspiration, so please join us for what promises to be a really interesting day.
