DISH has been held as a national conference on digital strategies for heritage in The Netherlands for a number of years, but in 2009 it went international; 2011 was the second international DISH conference. DISH 2011 was characterised by punchy keynotes and many (maybe too many) interesting concurrent sessions. Presentations were mainly from a western European perspective (presenters were predominantly Dutch, Belgian and British with a few Americans and other Europeans thrown in), but I thought there were some take-aways for the (South) African heritage context.
Digital strategy and institutional change In reflecting on the African context, one of the most compelling keynotes for me was by Clifford Lynch, talking about institutional change in cultural memory institutions. @archifau: some cultural institutions are like Sleeping Beauty. 1. Notes. Should museums be using social media more creatively? It’s one thing to manage your profiles on the proliferating social networking and sharing sites as an individual, but as an institution it’s quite another.
So, we ask ourselves this question at Tate social media HQ all the time. Opera North Projects. Creating exciting performances The work of Opera North Projects crosses conventional boundaries, bringing classical and contemporary arts together in an eclectic year-round programme of performance, visual arts commissions, literary events and artistic development.
Projects take apart the elements of opera: words, music, visual arts and theatre, and put them back together in new ways. Opera North Projects produces small-scale touring shows, site specific performance and commissions, together with a rolling programme of artistic residencies. ‘Home’ is the beautifully restored Howard Assembly Room in Leeds, a captivating and flexible performance space whose public programme is curated by the Projects Department. Work often has an emphasis on collaboration, with recent partners including The Royal Shakespeare Company, the Manchester International Festival, Kneehigh Theatre, The Opera Group and The Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Get in touch Current Projects. Mini Operas - Opera North invites bloggers to get a ruddy blog ON. This month Opera North will host two separate bloggers events at the Theatre Royal, Newcastle and The Lowry, Salford Quays.
A selection of local bloggers and tweeters have been invited to come and see Opera North’s production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Ruddigore. Ruddigore is a witty Victorian melodrama and one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most inventive works. Filled with slapstick comedy and old style humour, we are challenging the bloggers not to laugh and form their own opinion on whether ‘the old jokes are still the best?’ The bloggers will receive ‘access some areas’ behind the scenes treatment with a backstage tour and introductions from Opera North representatives and cast members. Événements. A propos de La bataille du Centre Pompidou. Bien avant la bataille du Centre Pompidou, j’avais commencé à mélanger Twitter et jeux vidéo dans Tweet Runner, un jeu de plate-formes où les niveaux et les ennemis étaient générés à partir des informations de votre compte twitter (messages, followers,…).
Parallèlement à ce jeu, dont j’étais assez peu satisfait à la base, je réfléchissais à un projet de jeu collaboratif, où les joueurs utilisant des mots clés sur twitter (appelés également hashtags, et qui ont une grande importance dans l’écosystème Twitter ) pourraient commander un même avatar / personnage. Je me disais qu’utiliser les hashtag #gauche » et #droite, qui reviennent souvent dans des discutions à caractères politiques sur Twitter serait amusant. Dans cette première ébauche, les joueurs s’alliaient pour déplacer la planète terre afin d’éviter une météorite géante qui avançait de quelques pixels toutes les heures (!). Observer les mécaniques de groupes se mettant en place durant cette soirée aura été un vrai plaisir. La bataille du centre Pompidou @ La nuit des musées 2011, centre Georges Pompidou.
Next practices for arts leaders. Chaîne de Imagination. Iamamiwhoami. Background Lee, seen performing here in 2008, developed iamamiwhoami with Björklund after the release of her second album in 2009.
Since the upload of their first video to YouTube, the project's videos and music have been continuous and operate in "real time," and each song is completed just before being made available for viewing. The first upload, "Prelude 699130082.451322" surfaced on YouTube in December 2009 and was the beginning of a since abstract storyline. Lee has said of this process "every time a production starts, it’s being released very soon after to keep the conversation with the audience in the present. It’s a chronological storyline of an evolution, from the very beginning up to now. I think the Internet is the place where you can do that iamamiwhoami is widely known for its secrecy. As such, Lee's participation was not confirmed until August 2011, where she began giving her first interviews regarding the project.
