Radiona @ Artistic Equality international round table

As a part of the Feral Labs Network program online panel titled Artistic Equality with Helen Leigh, Deborah Hustic and Majken Overgaard is set to take place from 14.00-16.00 on Thursday, 20th August. The program is supported under Creative Europe.

Helen Leigh is a maker, educator and writer who specialises in creative uses of new technologies. She lectures on electronics, physical computing and playful practice at Ravensbourne University in London, and has delivered high profile technology projects for clients such as Intel Education and National Geographic.

Throughout her career Majken Overgaard has focused on the synergies between technology and contemporary art. The overall objective has been to explore the interdisciplinary universe where art, science and technology cross-fertilize and form a creative environment for development of new ideas, experiments and inventions.

Majken Overgaard is an experienced teacher with a focus on creating an inclusive learning environment. As an educational activist she has initiated numerous activities for women and other underrepresented groups in art and technology. Furthermore, she has worked as an external lecturer at the IT University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen University, where the focus has been on developing new approaches to innovation and entrepreneurship for the creative sector. The starting point and motivation has always been the interdisciplinary and world changing possibilities both art and technology hold while unfolding the potential of individuals as well as communities and to make people and ideas grow and come to live.
