The technological revolution is having an enormous impact on the arts and
creative industries.  As during the Renaissance, artists are coming out of
their ivory towers to draw influence from and engage with science, commerce
(eg: games technology), and many other areas of life.

Taking place at a fascinating point in history, Wired and Dangerous is a
2-day conference exploring  "the impact of technology on the creative
process".   The sixth and final conference in the hugely popular Get Wired
series, it also forms part of the 2000-2001 Year of the Artist celebrations.
Shaped by  a group of leading practitioners from the arts and technology
fields, the programme brings together artists, commentators, arts managers
and others to create a "safe" environment in which the mainstream arts
community can embrace technology and vice versa.

Organised by the Arts Council of England, Eastern Touring Agency and East
Midlands Arts, Wired and Dangerous is relevant for artists, arts programmers
and anyone seeking to explore this area of work.
