[About]

The Art of the Networked Practice Online Symposium is an international gathering presenting emerging research, artistic work, and technological innovation in the networked arts. Intended as a global and inclusive gathering, with no registration fees, the symposium unites local and remote speakers and audiences from all corners of the world via Webconferencing, bridging Singapore with an active international new media arts community that transcends geographic and cultural boundaries. The symposium demonstrates how networked space can be used to activate live performance and online artistic work, stimulate creative dialogue, and encourage open sharing of knowledge through an online global exchange.

[Social Broadcasting:
An Unfinished Communications Revolution]

Media historian and activist Gene Youngblood signals the need for “a communications revolution… an alternative social world” that decentralizes the experience of the live broadcast through the creative work of collaborative communities. In response to Youngblood’s call-to-action, the Art of the Networked Practice Online Symposium will have as its theme, “Social Broadcasting: An Unfinished Communications Revolution.” Through the presentation of keynotes, live performances, and global roundtable discussions, the Art of the Networked Practice Online Symposium explores the concept of social broadcasting and its histories as a revolutionary  shift from one-to-many streaming and performance modalities to distributed peer-to-peer interactions that creatively join artists and audiences in live, networked spaces.
