Creative Uses of ICT in Connected Communities: A Scoping Study
SiDE Creative Industries researchers presented at this year’s Digital Economy All Hands conference: Digital Engagement. The paper, presents a scoping study about creativity and connected communities, funded by the AHRC Connected Communities programme and the EPSRC-funded SiDE (Social Inclusion through the Digital Economy) project within the Digital Economy hub. This project aims to problematise the notion of ‘community’ in the context of an increasingly technology-driven society. It also aims to provide a multifaceted analysis and critical discussion of connected communities and the creative ways they form, sustain and re-invent themselves creatively through technology. Thereby, it attempts to unpack the complex relationship between digital technologies, their creative uses by communities, and the socio-cultural impacts of this use.
