Culture Hack Scotland, May 2011


  • 18/06/2011

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know that Culture Hack Scotland happened! Hosted by festivalslab the Edinburgh Festivals Innovation Lab and co-produced with Rohan of festivalslab; Suzy from Trigger; and myself (on behalf of AmbITion Scotland). After co-producing the Culture Hack Day, London in January I was in a good position to advise on how to collect the data, issues to circumnavigate and what’s needed for an event like this.

What a wonderful, prolific, and confirming event it was. Like a breath of fresh air tinged with the smell of data being crunched and squooshed into a mighty fine showcase. This event demonstrated the talent of the tech scene in Scotland and the need for the cultural sector to have some kind of ongoing forum for work of this nature. Check it out on this video i put together:

Culture Hack Scotland: The Hacks from festivalslab.

I sorted all the logistics, tech and IT, catering, venue, assets for presentations and videoed the presentations on the opening night and the ‘show and tell’ you see above.
