3rd MOBILE CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION
SYMPOSIUM

Going Mobile?

The MINA 2013 Symposium, Screenings and Workshops explore the expansion of mobile social media, mobile technologies, mobile production and mobile aesthetics.

From November 18 – 22, 2013 AUT University will be the home of a series of events exploring mobile technologies in film, education, business and creativity.  The week begins with a two-day mobile filmmaking workshop, and moves into the Mobile Creativity and Mobile Innovation Symposium, before closing with the third edition of the International Mobile Innovation Screening.

The events are co-hosted by MINA (Mobile Innovation Network Aotearoa), Colab (AUT University) and the School of Art & Design (AUT University) in collaboration with the School of Design at the College of Creative Arts (Massey University, Wellington).

Within the last few years, the proliferation of smartphones and other mobile devices has changed the way people interact and communicate.

The 2013 MINA Symposium and Screening is centred around the question, ‘how are mobile and social media technologies used to create innovation through creative and cultural practices?’ and will seek to answer this question through presentations of papers, workshops, poster presentations, performances, project showcases and mobile screenings in situ and via live web-broadcasts.

3rd Mobile Creativity and Mobile Innovation Symposium

21 – 22 November | 9.15am – 6pm

The Symposium provides a platform for filmmakers, artists, designers, researchers and industry professionals to debate the prospect of wireless, mobile and ubiquitous technologies in art and design environments, education, and the creative industries.

The 2013 programme explores some specific mobile developments and dynamics in a multi-disciplinary context such as mobile & media production, mobile & pedagogy, mobile & aesthetic, mobile & hybrid art, mobile & interactivity, mobile & space and mobile & society, mobile & transmedia.

Keynote speakers are Helen Keegan (University of Salford, UK) and Larissa Hjorth (RMIT University, Australia).
