NEW HORIZONS: FRIDAY 7 MARCH, 9AM-6PM

New Horizons brings a variety of people, disciplines, and interests
together in one provocative, thought-provoking, enormously creative, and
fun day. This will not be a day of death by PowerPoint. You'll leave the
day with new ideas, new visions, and new friends.

YOUR HOSTS
Louisa Heinrich - strategist, speaker, designer, instigator, and the
founder of futures agency Superhuman
Leila Johnston - writer, speaker, artist, hacker, and the publisher of
digital arts and tech magazine Hack Circus

SPEAKERS AND SESSION LEADERS
Each New Horizons session will feature two speakers with different - but
complimentary - views on a key topic. You'll get the chance to hear and
then discuss their points of view and how they might impact you, your work,
and society at large. It provides a platform for intelligent and reasoned
debate, and cross-disciplinary interaction. Speakers and session leaders
include:

Camille Baker - artist-performer/researcher/curator in a wide range of art
forms and Lecturer, Brunel University
David M. Berry - writer and Reader in Media & Communication, University of
Sussex

England

Luke Robert Mason - writer and researcher in emerging technologies
Antonio Roberts - as Hello Catfood, the UK's leading glitch artist
Shardcore - artist, theorist and digital provocateur
Kate Sicchio - choreographer, media artist, performer, and Senior Lecturer
in Dance, University of Lincoln

New Horizons will start with a keynote talk by Roy Ascott - Professor of
Technoetic Arts at Plymouth University, and one of the UK's foremost
digital media theorists. We'll also have music from performers including
chiptune maestro Matt Westcott and live coding band Meta-eX.

STALLS
Peckham artist collective Garudio Studiage will be selling their beautiful
gifts that are certain to put a smile on your face.
