Call for artists - Update conference, Brighton (UK) - August 15th deadline

Call for artists - Update conference, Brighton

We’re seeking musicians, visual artists, performers and experimenters to bring performances, installations and multi-media art forms to the Update conference. Part of the Brighton Digital Festival, the conference is at Brighton Dome on September 5th 2011 from 10am to 6pm with an after party in Brighton Museum.

Update focuses on mobile design and user experience – putting the human touch at the centre of the digital world. Speakers include Jeremy Keith, Aral Balkan, Seb Lee-Delisle, and Brendan Dawes leading international figures in creative technology, web, user experience and mobile development.

There are half hour slots during the after party at Brighton Museum and five minute slots during the conference itself at the Brighton Dome for performers. Spaces in the Dome bar, foyer and museum are available for sculptures and installation work.

We’re looking for 3 performers and 3 artists to exhibit. If you’re interested in performing or exhibiting, we’re interested in talking to you; we particularly welcome artists who incorporate elements of mobile technology, human-centred design, or user experience in their work.

Unfortunately Update does not have funds to pay artists, but offers the chance to perform and exhibit at these great venues, gain exposure and network with an audience of up to 500 creative developers, influencers and early adopters of new technology. We can offer one ticket per artist or team member plus one guest, and a contribution towards expenses based on your estimates.

Please send proposals to Ollie Glass ( by August 15th with a breakdown of your technical requirements, and feel free to email with any other questions.
