Cross sector speakers such as Ian Livingstone from EIDOS, Ian Anderson from Designers Republic and artist/entrepreneur Lars Denicke will stimulate debates around development, design and digital character play. The festival aims to showcase new technology, new software and new art forms that will inevitably have a developmental and cultural impact on the sectors context and will encourage growth in many areas.
