Seventh session of a series of nine public workshops from the cultural value and the digital: practice, policy and theory research project, focusing on online collectivities and collections.

Through a series of six public workshops the Cultural value and the digital: practice, policy and theory research project will explore how conceptions of cultural value are currently operating and could be examined in relationship to digital media and museums.

This research project focuses on Tate’s digital practices and policies as well as the practices of other UK and European Museums that shape contemporary production of culture; a context which is transformed or challenged by current digital technologies and network culture.

Join artists, curators, producers, museum professionals, academics and policy makers working in the field of digital technologies for a set of discussions about the digital culture within the museum setting at one of our workshop sessions.

This is a collaborative and interdisciplinary research project between Tate, the Royal College of Art and London South Bank University and is funded by AHRC’s Cultural Value strand.
