During this one day online workshop we will issue a challenge to delegates  to create, experiment, iterate and share responses to sustainability using free and everyday digital media making tools - thus navigating the plethora of free and agile apps and equipment that we now live amongst - tapping into the resources that we already have, rather than fetishising the brands and prosumer media making tools that we might otherwise aspire to.

Delegates are also invited to reflect on the implications of this attempt. It’s easy to say that we are in a kind of ‘transmedia 2.0’ era, where the app-sphere and ubiquity of smartphone devices and high-speed mobile networks have ‘democratised’ media production, and collapsed the difference between consumer and producer, private and public. But this surely can’t be that easy? The access to networks vary on geographic and social levels, and kit still requires capital outlay. Technology has its ontological logic, that drives users towards specific ends, and lives within ecosystemic configurations that open up some pathways of expression, and block others. Technology itself is socially determined, and as such can be both a reflection of cultural hegemony (i.e. dominant power/economic relations), and local resistances to those hegemonic forces (i.e. glocal content, ‘Arab Spring’ moments).

 

So, where does this leave the individual media maker, and their navigation of the design and execution of a media work on sustainability? This workshop creates a space for doing and thinking these issues. Please register in advance.
