Salon: Innovate

Date:Thu 21 Mar
Time:6.30 - 8.30pm
Venue:J3
Price:£5 including a drink

Salon is a new project produced by Cambridge Junction. The concept is to hold space for the exchange and sharing of new ideas between people working in the arts, games, digital media and technology, research and academia. Our hope is to help foster cross-sector and interdisciplinary collaboration. At each event there will be a series of short presentations, discussion and sharing using a form of Open Space technology, and a chance to network with a bunch of interesting and interested people.
