Ulster University is one of ten leading universities across the UK to host a national debate celebrating the importance of the arts and humanities to our culture and creative economy.

Taking place on Wednesday 11 November, the debate will explore the integration of technology into our everyday lives. The public event will be live streamed between Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin, Derry, and Kings College London and is free of charge.

Attendees will get the opportunity to hear from high profile speakers including Múirne Laffan, Managing Director of RTÉ Digital and Bill Thompson, Head of Partnership Development and Archive Development, BBC, who will discuss the extent to which technology plays a major role in our everyday lives and what this means for those on the wrong side of the digital divide.

The event will be chaired in Derry by Professor Paul Moore, Head of the School of Creative Arts and Technologies, Ulster University, and in London by Anthony Lilley OBE, Magic Lantern.

The University debate is part of a national series titled ‘The way we live now’ coordinated by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to mark 10 years of supporting UK researchers in this field.

Speaking about the upcoming event, Professor Paul Moore from Ulster University said: “Ulster University is renowned for its leading creative arts and technologies teaching, learning and research and we are delighted to bring this digital debate to a public audience as part of the AHRC 10th Anniversary celebrations.

“As part of the series, Ulster University will join other top universities including Cambridge University that will explore other key aspects of our changing culture and society including faith and education, the future of the book and language.

“The event will be a great opportunity to hear from those at the forefront of digital communications about how technology is changing the way we get our news and see the world.”
