Emerging Technology, Design and Indigenous Culture Conference
10 May, 9:30am — 4pm
Media Design School,
A showcase of creative practitioners using emerging technologies in design, games, VR/AR, animation, video and more.
Indigenous culture is often associated with traditional practices and the past. Yet this one-day conference + workshops event reveals that emerging techologies are being used to inform — and even transform — the practice of indigenous art and design in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Join us as we explore issues such as integrating the innovative and the traditional in creative practice; engaging communities with new technologies; and the future opportunities offered by technological developments.
The morning conference session features keynotes and rapid-fire Pecha Kucha presentations showcasing the work of creative practitioners from graphic design, games, VR/AR, animation, digital making, video, art, and interaction design.
Confirmed speakers include:
Tristan Schultz – Designer and Lecturer at Griffith University (Gold Coast, Australia)
Siliga David Setoga – Artist and Designer
David Hakaraia – Digital Maker and Lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington (Wellington)
