Glo/cal – local and community projects using digital to encourage global engagement & participation
The amazing new arts, music, cinema and creative industries centre, Mareel in Lerwick on the Shetland Isles, hosted our first 2012 AmbITion Scotland roadshow. On the topic of Glo/cal, the roadshow explored how local and community focussed projects can encourage global participation and engagement through utilising digital tools. Hannah Rudman gave an overview of the topic and opportunities available to the arts, culture and heritage sector through AmbITion Scotland; Gwilym Gibbons, Director of Shetland Arts gave a case study about their work including Mareel; and Lucy Conway founder of Eigg Box explained her vision with Stef Lewandowski (Eigg Box’s Geek in Residence) showing off the first glo/cal art object to be created at Eigg Box – the renowned Data Necklace. A Q&A with online and live audiences finished this great webcast masterclass.
