Booking has opened for the third annual Shift Happens arts and technology conference.

Shift Happens: ALT Shift, at York Theatre Royal on 5 and 6 July 2010, will show artists and art organisations how to maximise the growing opportunities new technologies offer.

The conference is organised by Pilot Theatre in partnership with York Theatre Royal supported by Arts Council England, Yorkshire.

Delegates can learn about the latest developments in digital technology, explore innovative online opportunities, and network with industry leaders.

There will also be a fascinating line up of speakers, including the National Theatre’s Head of Digital Media David Sabel, artist and computer scientist Jonathan Harris, and world-renowned creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson.

A selection of the speakers will be hosted via Skype, as part of Pilot Theatre’s work to reduce the carbon footprint for the event.

Denise Fahmy, Visual Arts and Media Officer, Arts Council England, Yorkshire, said: ‘Shift Happens offers a place for the arts community to share the very best in digitally enhanced practice and developments, and we are delighted to be supporting the conference in its third year. Previous conferences have offered both a light-bulb moment for delegates, as well as relaxed reflection. This year the Shift Happens programme is even broader and promises to inspire and motivate the whole arts community to work digitally.’

Arts Council England, Yorkshire supports Shift Happens as part of its work to foster an arts sector that is digitally active and prepared for emerging opportunities.

The two day conference with lunch and barbecue on the Monday, breakfast and lunch on the Tuesday, free drinks and snacks both days is just ??150 plus VAT. For more information and to book tickets visit Shift Happens
