Uni to Unicorns

Event date
3 March 2020 - 8 March 2020 (10am to 6pm)
Uni to Unicorns

Join the Digital Maker Collective at Tate Exchange to unpack the creative power of the tech industries and explore where the art world meets the tech world.

The UK is third in the world for producing successful tech companies and unicorns, which are privately-owned tech companies valued at over $1bn. UAL are at the centre of this tech revolution, yet the gap between tech business/giants and everyday society is continually widening. How do we reconcile this gap and bring the tech world into arts, but equally important, how do we bring arts creatives into the world of tech?

Join the University of the Arts, UAL Digital Maker Collective and guests from the creative and tech industries. Help us transform Tate Exchange into an open and accessible ‘Test Bed' for creative tech. A place for all to explore, question and learn about the world of tech business and future technologies. Come chat and get hands on in the Immersive CoLab space and Co-Creation Studio, help define the future of new immersive arts from location-based experiences to holographic entertainment and question the world of tech from facial recognition to the smart city.

Find out more about this event, its delivery partners, its location and running times on the Tate Exchange website.
