Cumulus Digital Culture is a working group bringing together members of the CUMULUS Association dedicated to new media and interaction design.
For a while now, digital technologies and services have appeared all around us on a worldwide scale. Art, design and media higher education institutions have taken into account this emerging and challenging trend pervading our societies.
Many courses, curriculums, degrees and research projects have come to life over the past ten or fifteen years: “new media, “interaction design”, “multimedia/hypermedia” etc…
Depending on each institution’s own history, on the personal interests of the pioneering founders as well as on national and local contexts, many different options have been explored.This working group tries to identify and to gather the various players in our institutions interested in what can be called a “digital culture” in a broader sense, since 2007.
It is meant to be both a platform for discussion and exchanges about existing experiences and a framework for future collaboration, including the quite contemporary issue of research.
About the Digital Culture Sessions
Digital Culture sessions are curated by Frédéric Degouzon, head of strategy at L’École de design Nantes Atlantique (f.degouzon[at create]lecolededesign.com), with help from the local Cumulus conference organisers.
Included in the regular programme of the Cumulus conference twice a year, it usually gathers valuable local speakers and participants from the Cumulus institutions.
