'Clicks or Mortar - Designing a Future for Cultural Venues in the Digital Age' - Pixel Palace, Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle Gateshead.

Tom Fleming will be keynote speaker and chair at the Clicks or Mortar'
Symposium' on Friday March 6th. The event is for cultural creatives, thinkers and planners to debate the role and challenge the relevance of cultural bricks and mortar buildings in tomorrow's digitised and networked artistic practice.

"Digital technology is already turning some cultural cinemas into spaces that can host an ever widening range of cultural product, from live opera to the National Theatre and an ever expanding diet of participative activity from interactive artists and computer gamers. This digital wave is also crashing over theatres, arts centres, galleries and all other cultural venues, proposing new forms of performance and, most significantly, engaging audiences who may well be turning from passive consumers of culture into active participants in its creation and distribution".

On March 6th, influential voices in film, theatre, games, television, IT, web and the digital arts will gather in NewcastleGateshead to explore what this might mean for the future.

Creative Islington 'Open Space' Event

Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy will be facilitating an Open Space consultation event next week on behalf of Islington Council and Creative Islington, to explore the future role of Creative Islington.

Islington Council has recently renewed its commitment to arts and culture and has created a new Cultural Services division, within the Environment and Regeneration Directorate, to lead and coordinate it. As part of this commitment, the council has also renewed its support to Creative Islington, the third sector development agency for Islington's not-for-profit arts, creative and cultural industries.

The consultation event will provide an opportunity for participants to help shape the future development of Creative Islington and to meet and network with a broad range of artists and arts organisations working in Islington.
