Tactics and Practice: New Media Drivers [sl Ljubljana]

Tactics and Practice: New Media Drivers — A Pilot Seminar in New Media Arts :: June 1-5, 2010 :: Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture, Trg Prekomorskih brigad 3, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

New media arts. Whether you make it, curate it, present it, write about it, teach it, programme it, or shape it in some other way, its constantly evolving technologies, a tendency to venture into unknown territories and mingle with diverse disciplines, and a predisposition for critical self-reflection and social discourse fuse new media arts into a fast-paced field that demands frequent updating of the drivers that operate its machinery.

Thus, the 5-day free pilot seminar Tactics and Practice: New Media Drivers aims to refresh and expand the new media arts educational offering in Slovenia and provide useful tools and insights into the field for creators at various stages in their careers. By utilizing various teaching methods and modalities (lectures, coaching sessions, workshops, conversations, participatory actions, performances, presentations) the seminar connects the new generation of new media arts creators with renowned professionals in the field to build a bridge from an academic “learning environment” to a “working environment”, and champions the values of process-oriented and lifelong learning through direct contact, communication, and dialogue.

The seminar compiles a snapshot of the state of new media art today from different angles while at the same time wanting to “demystify” it. Regardless of how you currently contribute or seek to contribute to the field, you are invited to participate in the week’s events and update your own new media drivers.
