This event is aimed at people currently working in the arts sector - including but not limited to curators, producers and gallerists - with an interest in commissioning and presenting art that engages with AI.

The event, hosted at Science Gallery London, King’s flagship exhibition space, will feature presentations and provocations from key members of the cultural sector working with AI, focusing on best practice, potentials and concerns around responsible AI and the cultural sector.

It will include curatorial case studies, practicalities and resources, exploring the stories we tell within “what we see, show and tell, about whom, with what, and why” (Zylinska, 2020: 153) in relation to AI.

Speakers include:

  • Christl Baur, Head of Ars Electronica
  • Luba Elliot, Independent Curator
  • Donna Holdford-Lovell, Director, NEoN Digital Arts
  • The New Real (Edinburgh Futures Institute)
  • Irini Papadimitriou, Creative Director, FutureEverything
  • Hannah Redler-Hawes, Director, Data as Culture, Open Data Institute
  • Jennifer Wong, Head of Programme, Science Gallery London
  • Joanna Zylinska, Professor of Media Philosophy + Critical Digital Practice at King's College London

This event is brought to you by BRAID (Bridging Responsible AI Divides) a 3-year national research programme funded by the UKRI Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), led by the University of Edinburgh in partnership with the Ada Lovelace Institute and the BBC. BRAID includes a series of creative community engagement events, intended to build upon existing networks and strengthen the AI and Arts ecosystem in the UK.

BRAID is committed to equality of opportunity and seeks to locate and amplify under-represented voices and perspectives on responsible AI. We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, and both the AHRC and the University of Edinburgh have a longstanding commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and to promoting a positive culture, which celebrates difference, challenges prejudice and ensures fairness. We particularly welcome people from marginalised and under-represented groups, and those at earlier stages in their career to attend.

A limited number of travel bursaries are available to support those who would otherwise be unable to attend. Please email to discuss your needs.
