The University of Plymouth is a partner in the South West Creative Technology Network (SWCTN) and we invite you to spend a day with us online as we share our year of Automation.

Spend the day with us online as we share a year of deep thinking and prototype-making by artists, technologists, health and education professionals, engineering and manufacturing experts, architects, academics and researchers, in the field of Automation.

Automation is changing the way we live. It could be seen as the ‘quiet’ revolution – working in the background to assist in creative processes, gradually transforming agriculture through robotics, or re-imagining how we search the internet. Over the last year we’ve invested over £600,000 into exploring Automation and its applications. We’re interested in how it develops in a way that is ethical, promotes wellbeing, connects us to one another and creates value in the world.

Looking through a Creative Industries lens, SWCTN has brought people together from different sectors, with industry and academia joining forces. This joining of forces, or Knowledge Exchange, combined with expertise in creative producing and business development is at the heart of our process. Our aim has been to facilitate connections and create spaces to share skills, collaborate and co-create.

With over 30 sessions to choose from throughout the day you can expect to:

Be the first to engage with new products, services and experiences being developed through our automation prototype programme

  • Participate in interactive experiences created by artists in the South West
  • Join our Knowledge Exchange team as they share our learning and manifesto for connecting research and development, and academia and industry
  • Think about the future (and past) of inclusion and creative technology, and work with us to make change
  • Dive into the research from our 24 Fellows who have been exploring the frontiers of automation technology
  • Meet our Producer Fellows as they discuss their learning on the role of the Producer in art and technology innovation

Visit the SWCTN Automation Showcase event page for the latest information. The event will take place on the platform Hopin and more details will be sent about how to access this closer to the time.
