Building Digital Capacity for the Arts - seminar 1
The 'Digital platforms: internet protocol television (IPTV) and apps' seminar explores two important platforms for the distribution of content for cultural organisations. The seminar includes presentations from practitioners and explores models for the cultural sector.
Speakers include Mark Dobson and Andy Hudson, NewcastleGateshead Cultural Venues; Chris Thorpe, ArtFinder; and also Colin Savage and Mark Bamber, both BBC Academy trainers.
BBC Academy and Arts Council England have joined forces to offer training and guidance to the arts sector across England on how to maximize the creation and distribution of high quality arts content for audiences on digital platforms, including online, mobile and internet protocol television.
The Building Digital Capacity for the Arts programme, announced in September 2010, will support the development of the arts sector's media production skills by bringing together the BBC Academy's media and digital experience with the Arts Council's extensive knowledge of the arts sector.
The initial programme runs from March 2011 - August 2012 and will consist of a launch event, practical seminars, an online guide to commissioning, facilitated masterclasses and an online resource of filmed and streamed content.
