2016-17 Theme: The New Shape of Things: Big Data, Big Stories

Our theme last year was “City as Classroom” where we sought insight and experience that the city has to offer to inform and stimulate. This year we go beyond the city in exploring the extent to which McLuhan’s adage that “the medium is the message” applies to the underlying influences of our data surround and in particular “big data” that shape and influence how we see, act and grow. We seek explore data both literally and metaphorically from a variety of perspectives of science, the arts, business, industry and academe.
