There is no denying the effect that digital technologies are having upon the cultural sectors. The effect can be seen in the creation, practice and distribution of arts and culture across the globe.
What, therefore, are the questions and considerations being raised by artists and organisations as the relationship between the arts and digital becomes ever more intertwined? The Space has approached a number of respected representatives from across the creative sectors to give us their opinions on the issues, topics and questions that they think are important for us to consider.
In a series of thought-provoking essays, we examine the changing relationship between arts and technology and opportunities and challenges of the digital age.
