Thursday 17th May, 2012
4:20pm to 5:10pm
Speaker: Loz Kaye
The creative industries are thriving as never before. In 2011 the US saw new record in music sales. UK box office takings broke the 1 billion pound mark for the first time. Yet, we remain trapped in a sterile “piracy” debate. Partly because of this, creatives fear for the future. It is time to move forward and look at the real challenges an opportunities in the post-digital landscape? How can the publishing industry and nascent 3D printing technology learn from the mistakes of the music and film industries? It is time to find the new cultural, political and business models for making a living after 2012?
