With Nesta anouncing that five arts and cultural projects will receive funding from the £7 million Digital R&D Fund for the Arts earlier this month - is it about time that we saw more of this money coming to the North West more speciaficaly Liverpool based arts and cultural organisations.
These R&D projects are testing the use of digital technologies to widen audience access and engagement in the arts, with the purpose of developing useful products, services and knowledge for the wider the arts and cultural sector so surely we could be applying for some of this money here.
One of the outcomes from last weekends Oggcamp - if you missed it catch it next year - is that a new group is being set up on Merseyside to look at building drones.

Members of local voluntary and community sector groups are invited to this free social media advice session.

This year, the seventh annual Get online campaign takes place from. The campaign encourages everyone in Britain to get digital for the week.
It's been away awhile but it is now back with us and we are hoping for a great weekend discovering all sorts of digital quackery. Yes, people will be constructing their own internet and taking selfies while on the loo, so suffice to say yes it is the AND Festival. The same people who brought you David Shrigley giving people tattoos in Untility's window are entertaining us over the wekend with a pile of other mad performamces, cinema and digital interventions. (Yes I said interventions)
There are loads of really cool events and workshops so do check out the AND website for those.
