In July 2018, DCRC convened the first Creativity, Knowledge, Cities (CKC) Conference to critically explore the tensions between the cultural sector, cities and universities.
CKC 2019: Rethinking, Resisting, and Reimagining the Creative City builds on these productive debates.
Join us at Watershed over September 12 – 13 for two days of exploration, conversation and workshops. Across roundtables and keynote panels we’ll be hearing from researchers, activists, artists, policymakers and practitioners. Together we will unpack the relationships between place, the creative sector and the university, thinking and working collectively towards more resilient and just urban futures.

Opening Keynote from DCRC Director Mandy Rose
This one-day symposium held at the Royal College of Art investigates current practice and thinking about the technologies of Virtual Reality, and the related mediums of Extended, xR and Augmented Reality.
Now that they are sufficiently developed and accessible for artists, designers and the general public, Virtual Realities and Alterities – other ways of doing VR, XR and AR – remain an emerging field of study, and what constitutes the ‘virtual’ is still open to debate.
This one-day conference will explore the ways in which audio-visual and other media imagine – and produce images of – the Anthropocene, climate destabilisation and related anthropogenic threats to human, environmental and planetary well-being.
