Creative Crossings workshop

Creative Crossings was organised by m-cult, banff centre and arts council england to bring together practitioners from Britain, Canada and Finland to discuss participatory and creative applications for the development of mobile/located and cross-platform media. It was a research based event looking at practice in contemporary media arts.

Some of our ambitions were:

* Investigate transformative use of space and place
* Address gaps in infrastructure: access to standards, material frameworks and technology
* Instigate a triangular network: tried and trusted network practice
* Pursue research and practice, less engineering
* Explore relationships between media, gaming, locative, mobile, visual media

Anne Galloway has posted our collaborative summaries from the workshop and my full notes are here, until they can be put on the collective server.

The discussion is continuing, and the next informal meeting of participants is happening at ISEA 2004.
