Distribution and Dissemination after New Media
Professional Development Workshop organised by CRUMB,

Literary and Philosophical Society Library, Loftus Room

CRUMB are happy to announce a new Professional Development Workshop for 
contemporary art curators, Distribution and Dissemination after New 
Media, as part of AV Festival 2012 and following on from their opening 
weekend, http://www.avfestival.co.uk/.

The connected new media of streaming, web broadcasting and 
narrowcasting, smartphone apps and augmented reality offer intriguing 
opportunities for art and culture. This professional development 
workshop brings together experts from across Europe, to share real 
practical experience of dealing with issues of:

What happens to ideas of the 'live', over time?
What kinds of audiences?
How are artists using distributive media?

Speakers/workshop leaders:

Robert Sakrowski
is an Art Historian, Artist and Curator based in Berlin. From 1999–2003 
he headed the project netart-datenbank.org at TU Berlin and curated 
several exhibitions in the field of Net-based art. After working at the 
Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research in Linz, since 2007 he 
has created various exhibitions dealing with questions circling art and 
art practices connected to the web 2.0 of which themes are the main 
focus of his blog, http://curatingyoutube.net/

Ajay RS Hothi
is Manager & Curator of tank.tv 'the only online museum of contemporary 
artists’ moving image'. Tank.tv invites guest curators to create an 
exhibition from their permanent collection, has held live events at 
Tate Modern, the ICA, ZKM Karlsruhe and Kulturhuset Stockholm, and has

Kutlug Ataman.

Roger McKinley
is Research and Innovation Manager at FACT, Liverpool, and has led on 
the Artplayer.tv, an Arts Council supported project which is 'a free to 
use national media player for the arts'. Aimed at National Portfolio 
and Regional Funded Organisations, it aims towards online programme 
creation and generate opportunities for venues and artists to create 
their own 'channels'.

At a time when the Arts Council and NESTA are considering funding 
structures for new media as a means of distribution, this a key 
workshop for curators, artists, educators and others interested in how 
media might meet their audiences, and how new media might be 
distributive art in itself, as well as a means to an end. This 
professional development workshop builds on the highly successful CRUMB 
event led by former Guggenheim curator Caitlin Jones concerning 
'Documenting New Media Art', 

The workshop is FREE, but places are strictly limited and BOOKING IN
