Hello, everyone

This is an online course that is taking place on the month of July. It will be mainly in Spanish (and partly in English), so it may be interesting to some of you.




Innovación en arte y cultura digital/INNOVATION IN DIGITAL ART AND CULTURE
Online course: UOC, LABoral, Universidad de Oviedo
July, 6 - 30, 2009

LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial and Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) are promoting a summer course on “Innovation in Digital Art and Culture” to be held this July at UOC’s virtual classrooms. The course is part of a joint collaboration by the two institutions together with the Universidad de Oviedo with the goal of responding to theoretical and practical training needs of students, professionals and academics working in the sphere of audiovisual communication and contemporary digital culture. The course is directed by Pau Alsina, director of Artnodes and lecturer in Arts and Humanities at UOC, Rosina Gómez-Baeza, director of LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, and Aquilino A. Juan Fuente, director of the Universidad de Oviedo’s Centre for Innovation.

The course Innovation in Digital Art and Culture is conceived to study the ongoing changes and transformations in contemporary art and cultural production under the influence of information and communication technologies, from an interdisciplinary context and in tune with the wider debates on an international scale in the fields of arts, humanities, communication and social sciences The programme is continued with the Feedforward International Symposium, scheduled for October 24th and 25th at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, open to all participants at this course.

Innovation in Digital Art and Culture is aimed at cultural producers (artists, critics, curators, journalists) and professionals related with art, social and cultural intervention. Its concerns range from critical and creative productions in and about the world of culture and art in several formats (artistic, journalistic, exhibitions, advertising) to educational and social practices carried out through culture (teachers, social educators, social workers, youth workers). It also targets the cultural industry and system (managers, directors, centres, politicians) and professionals from creative industries and cultural institutions in the wider sense of the term, involved in the processes of cultural management, production, planning, promotion and dissemination, and interested in studying the impact of ICTs on the industry.
