Last year Manchester, this year Melbourne. These events and their associated web sites seem to be getting bigger, better organised and higher profile.
The event is described as…
Urban Screens Melbourne 08 is the third, ground-breaking international conference and multimedia exhibition in a series of worldwide Urban Screens events. It will mark the official launch of the International Urban Screens Association and will take place 3rd-8th October at Federation Square, Melbourne.
The event promotes moving images in urban spaces and the impact on public culture. Keynote lectures, panel sessions, workshops, curated screenings and multimedia projects is designed to bring together leading Australian and international artists and curators, architects and urban planners, screen operators and content providers, technology manufacturers, software designers and public intellectuals.
Manchester was a good event, if a little ‘arty-farty’ and there is no reason to believe that this event won’t be just as good – the web site etc. all looks a bit more polished now as well.
