What's Next?
Creative Data Club is teaming up with celebrated information design agency Signal Noise for Data Gazing Trilogy - a series of special future-focused data events.

Data Gazing Trilogy

We will be bringing our signature blend of creative speakers to brand new venues across the capital, alongside a special event in Manchester, as part of our Data Gazing Trilogy beginning this autumn.

All events are completely free, so join us on a creative expedition about predicting the future with data today! Audiences will be admitted on a first come, first served basis.

Data Gazing #2

Creative Data Club x Music Hackspace: Track. Translate. Transmit.

Tuesday 29th November

In November, we will be collaborating with our friends at Music Hackspace to bring creative data right to the heart of LimeWharf’s cultural innovation hub in East London.

As artists, scientists, designers and entrepreneurs, we often find that, even through the smallest of explorations, there is a mass of data sitting at the very edge of our fingertips, waiting to be used. But how do we use it? Are we open with it? Do we seek to share it with others? And if so, what does that process of sharing involve?

How do we translate and retransmit the data that we have been tracking?

Speakers Tim Exile, Olivia Rzepczynski (what3words) and Alexis Kirke will be joining us to explore a breath of innovative and experimental uses of data sets; from generating sound and multimedia performance to providing an insight into better addressing the complex world in which we live today.

Data Gazing #1

Creative Data Club x Signal Noise: The Power of Prediction

Tuesday 20th September

First up this September we’ll be heading back to Shoreditch for London Design Festival to discuss the finer points of prediction alongside Signal Noise’s exhibition: Place Your Bets.

We are now entering the next stage of the data revolution, from the data we collect we are beginning to develop technologies to help us predict the future. From the rise of Trump in the US against all odds, to the oddly accurate prediction of celebrity deaths through football goals, 2016 has been an unusual year.

Are we using data in the wrong way, or is the data we’re using incorrect?

Speakers Mick Grierson, Anders Petterson and Kasia Molga will be joining us to predict the future for music, art and the environment through AI music composition, crowdsourced data and wearable technology.

Data Gazing Manchester Special

Creative Data Club x DM 16: Can data help us design and create with more diversity?

Tuesday 18th October

In October we will be teaming up with our friends at Design Manchester to bring creative data right to the heart of the Northern Quarter and to our host venue Texture.

Diversity is the celebration of our uniqueness, but in many situations it’s not present, it’s not valued and it’s often ignored. From arts to tech to boards to government, sections of our global community are missing.

How can we move past homogeny into a more representative future?

Speakers from CATCH, Music Hackspace and Signal Noise, and composer Michael Betteridge will be joining us to discuss the use of data to design assistive technology and adaptable musical interfaces, produce verbatim music theatre and address issues surrounding privacy and data inequality.

We Data

Creative Data Club is a platform for artists, scientists, agencies, designers, marketers, programmers and even the odd data cynic to listen, debate and be inspired by data and creativity. We bring together a handful of speakers from different backgrounds to share their thoughts and experiences, exploring the expanding world of data with the likes of Sam Aaron, creator of Sonic Pi, Sandy Black from the London College of Fashion and Jay Short from design agency Inition.
