Tracing The Steps.

A ground-breaking event exploring “open innovation approaches to arts and technology this Thursday in Dublin’s Docklands.

The free event, co-created by a group of professional dancers, technologists and IP law specialist, looks at the use of DLT-based archive and attribution for the professional dance community.

DLT is ‘Distributed ledger technology’ (DLT) – otherwise known as Blockchain.

Via Tracing The Steps:

Blockchain has the potential to revolutionise all our lives and how we understand the supply of goods and services – and now arts. DLT’s hold immutable data in a secure and encrypted way and ensure that transactions can never be altered.

To explore this potential, we will hear experienced and expert contributions from the worlds of Dance and Technology, along with live performances devised by Cathy Coughlan of Havoc Dance.

From the dance world,we will hear from legendary choreographer John Scott of the Irish Modern Dance Theatre, and Dr. Ríonach Ní Néill artistic director of Ciotóg dance company in conversation with Cathy Coughlan of Havoc Dance initiative.

From the tech sphere, we will have contributions from Dr. Oisin Boydell and Saad Shahid of CeADAR Research Centre, Fiona Delaney, Open Innovation specialist and Founder of Origin Chain Networks, along with Ismael Arribas, arts entrepreneur and Blockchain expert from Spain.

We will also have a legal contribution from Yvonne McNamara who is a Barrister- at-Law and Intellectual Property (IP) specialist,

Admission is free and all are welcome, especially for those in the arts community and with an interest in #blockchain and #DLT beyond the cryptocurrency use case.

Tracing the Steps in Liffey Trust Studios, North Wall, Dublin 1 on Thursday at 6.30-8.30pm
