Should an art gallery be a place to test new products out on the public?

28th June 

1530-1630 Should an art gallery be a place to test new products out on the public?

A series of 5, 10 minute quick fire presentations highlighting the pros and cons of collaborating between Creative Industries, emerging academic research and artists in an art gallery setting.

This event will speak to organisations who are considering working collaboratively with unusual and novel partners outside of their specific field, weather as part of product development or as speculative part of their research and ideation.

Centered around FACT’s innovation hub FACTLab, we will look at the value of working with a public-facing cultural centre and the impact that can have on products and services development.
