streaming-media network event with global participation.

experience in streaming media, performance, digital audio and video, VJ
work, etc, who wish to push their practice to a new collaborative level

On Saturday, 31 March, the final day of the workshop will be a live &
online event. Workshop participants will not only develop digital content
for the event, but will also help facilitate all aspects of it including
