One of the biggest hopes and early promises of the internet age was that it would bring us all closer together. In 2019 Creative Directions examines the impacts, failures and potential futures for our era of digital intimacy.

2019 Theme: 'Break Up'

What’s going on behind the screens? How are the major global digital platforms intersecting with local audiences, laws and cultures?  How do you engage and empower inclusive online communities when divisive content gets the most hits? Do we need to disconnect with our devices to reconnect with each other? And what kind of careers should emerging media and creative professionals be planning for when political talk turns to a tech break up?

Run by the School of Media, Film and Journalism, Creative Directions is an annual festival of ideas and industry know-how exploring critical issues shaping the contemporary media, cultural and communications industries. #CreativeDirections
