Business models, rights and ownership workshop, 20 April 2012

Digital transformations in business models, rights and ownership workshop
20 April 2012
The British Library, London

Digital transformations mean that cultural and media organisations now find themselves in a new environment in which communities of participants interact to create, curate, organise and support cultural experiences.

This was the second in a series of AHRC-funded events where practitioners and researchers came together to consider innovative practices, and develop new ideas together.

This workshop considered:

  • How can communities create new business relationships which work towards sustaining the community, rather than sustaining any given business model or relationship?
  • How do we deal with the profound challenges to ownership rights across the cultural industries, which have been created by digital transformations in the roles and relationships of creators, curators, sponsors and audiences?

Speakers included:

  • Robert Waddilove, Across The Pond/Google
  • Charles Beckett, Senior Officer, Digital, Arts Council England
  • Susannah Simons, BBC Head of Development, The Space
  • Rachel Marshall, Licensing manager, The British Library
  • Chris Speed, University of Edinburgh
  • James Bennett, Royal Holloway
  • Paul Dwyer, University of Westminster

The day involved presentations, discussions, and smaller-group conversations.

The event, including refreshments and lunch, was free. (Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council – Digital Transformations Programme).

Venue: The British Library Conference Centre, St Pancras, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB.
