VENUE> Literary and Philosophical Society Library,
Loftus Room / Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 1SE

CRUMB are happy to announce a new Professional Development Workshop for contemporary art curators, 'Distribution and Dissemination after New Media', as part of AV Festival 2012 and following on from their opening weekend.

The connected new media of streaming, web broadcasting and narrowcasting, smart phone apps and augmented reality offer intriguing opportunities for art and culture. This professional development workshop brings together experts from across Europe, to share real practical experience of dealing with issues of:

What happens to ideas of the 'live', over time?
What kinds of audiences?
How are artists using distributive media?

Speakers/workshop leaders:

- Ajay RS Hothi
is Manager & Curator of "the only online museum of contemporary artists’ moving image". invites guest curators to create an exhibition from their permanent collection, has held live events at Tate Modern, the ICA, ZKM Karlsruhe and Kulturhuset Stockholm, and has worked with Pipilotti Rist, Vito Acconci, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Kutlug Ataman.

- Roger McKinley
is Research and Innovation Manager at FACT, Liverpool, and has led on the, an Arts Council supported project which is “a free to use national media player for the arts”. Aimed at National Portfolio and Regional Funded Organisations, it aims towards online programme creation and generate opportunities for venues and artists to create their own 'channels'.

- Robert Sakrowski
is an Art Historian, Artist and Curator based in Berlin. From 1999–2003 he headed the project at TU Berlin and curated several exhibitions in the field of Net-based art. After working at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research in Linz, since 2007 he has created various exhibitions dealing with questions circling art and art practices connected to the web 2.0 of which themes are the main focus of his blog,

At a time when the Arts Council and NESTA are considering funding structures for new media as a means of distribution, this is a key workshop for curators, artists, educators and others interested in how media might meet their audiences, and how new media might be distributive art in itself, as well as a means to an end.

The theme of the workshop is also the subject of the current CRUMB online discussion list (Feb-Mar 2012), which sees as guest contributors Tatiana Bazzichelli, Simon Biggs, Johannes Birringer, Martin John Callanan, Helen Varley Jamieson, Caroline Langill , Kelani Nichole, Laura Sillars, Gary Thomas.
