A webinar for creatives and arts organisations on Tue 4 October 2022, 11am – 12.30pm, who want to know more about the impact of algorithms and bias on who is seen and heard in the digital sphere.
What is the impact of mediated tech on digital arts and culture?
A webinar for artists and arts organisations who want to know more about the impact of algorithms and bias on who is seen and heard in the digital sphere, and how, or even if, their creative work is presented to the world.
The webinar will be a mix of panel discussion and Q&A with the audience, and will cover:
* Who is impacted by algorithmic and tech injustice, and how?
* What is digital inclusion, and how might we ‘fold in’ the excluded?
* How is the arts sector responding, and what can be learned from other sectors?
* What’s happening at a grassroots level, and what can individuals and organisations do?
This webinar will be chaired by Rianna Walcott, who researches Black women’s identity formation in digital spaces and is a postdoctoral fellow. She co-founded projectmyopia.com, promoting inclusivity in academia and a decolonised curriculum, and is the UCL writing lab’s Scholar-in-Residence for 21-22. She’s written about race, feminism, mental health, arts and culture for Wellcome Collection, Metro, The Guardian, BBC, Vice, and Dazed. Rianna co-edited an anthology about BAME mental health – The Colour of Madness – and in the time left over she moonlights as a professional jazz singer.
