We have a real mashup of skills at bITjAM which also means our work will be varied too. We believe that a wide range of skills and experiences places us in a position to deliver cutting edge innovative digital projects.
Our current projects focus on:
Community development through the use of digital technologies Data mashing, visualisation and business intelligence Workshops and seminars exploring the use of digital technologies in a range of settings Research and development in digital engagement Community management, developing and managing online communities.
We thought it would be useful to reflect on our current projects to give a taste of the kind of work we’re involved in.
We are currently programming:
Geeklab: Redesigning the workshop format, an interactive workshop focusing on skill sharing using online streaming services.
bITjAM presents: Supporting emerging digital artists in a live environment. These events stem from the original format of bITjAM, bringing artists from varied backgrounds together, mashing skills together and nurturing new artistic directions.
bITjAM transmission: We are now taking the original bITjAM live performance into a live streamed event online. The original bITjAM reinvented the idea of live performance and blurred the lines between audience and performer.
DATfest our annual digital arts and media festival (February) working in partnership with b Arts and Stoke-on-Trent city council as part of Stoke your Fires film festival.
We are also working on a variety of digital projects including a:
