Core to CultureHub’s practice is the desire to investigate methods in which performing arts venues can use emerging network technologies such as WebRTC to facilitate and augment live performance. This discussion will bring representatives from the EU-funded project Vconect (Falmouth University and CWI), network art collective INTACT, and CultureHub together to discuss the artistic, cultural, and technical implications of employing telepresence and other internet based technologies in live, multi-location performance.
