This project examined how institutions, often not “cultural” institutions as such, are involved in turning live events or performance into digital packages which generate value or enhance public interest, e.g. providing access to digital archives. The main aim of the project was to hold a multi-stakeholder workshop in conjunction with the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014.

Project outputs include:

  • Designing Smart Cities: Opportunities and Regulatory Challenges – This conference focused on how contemporary urban life is increasingly marked and shaped by technology, and critically assessed what this means for existing societal norms and regulatory structures. A collection of videos from the conference has been made available along with links to a series of articles produced for Society for Computers and Law.
