Project description

The  (DDL)2  - my creative research lab - is currently in the process of developing a new project and grant proposals. In preparation for this I'm organizing a mini-symposium to map landscapes of ideas,  brainstorm wild dreams, and possibly  find collaborators and project partners (both research and companies). This project will serve as a conceptual and organizational preparation for the (DDL)2 ‘s intention to apply for the 2019 Connaught Innovation Award and perhaps the SSHRC Insight grant, focused on knowledge translation between disciplines, between arts/academia/businesses in the digital economies relevant to our fields.
