28-29 May - The Emerging Media Practices and Environments


The media environment is changing from the rigid channels of the past to a social mediaspace, where audiences become also actors, editors and distributors of content, equipped with new software powered social media tools. With new tools and technologies, new practices are born, which in turn inspire and demand new technological and service developments, as well as redesign of regulations, agreements and laws.

The Emerging Media Practices and Environments symposium will discuss this development, focusing especially on the audiovisual media, and aims to identify opportunities, interests, and challenges and develop recommendations for future developments.

The panel sessions include insights from pioneers of new video practices, technology developers, broadcasting companies, audiovisual archives, rights agencies and other important actors in the media environment, and are hosted by Paula Le Dieu, Tommi Laitio, Sanna Marttila and Kari-Hans Kommonen. All participants of the symposium are invited to take part in the discussions and in the development of a wish list of future developments for the audiovisual media environment and its actors. An Open Space session offers participants the opportunity to present their own relevant work and activities to the community.

The discussions take place in the Lume TV studio at the University of Art and Design Helsinki (TAIK) from 9:30 to 17:30 on Thursday, 28 May, followed by a technology day on the morning of Friday, 29 May.

The event is organized by the Arki research group of the Media Lab Helsinki and the P2P-FUSION project.
