Event description
What are the opportunities and implications of artificial intelligence for artists and our communities?

About this Event

NOTE: This workshop is open - drop in and drop out at any time and open to all ages.

This 1-day session will not only equip artists to understand the implications and opportunities of artificial intelligence but also imagine the appropriate artistic and political responses to a world that will be significantly altered by the introduction of these technologies.

We need artists not only using these tools, but informing the conversation about how these tools will be deployed, and to whose benefit.

We can engange in dialogue about how AI is used already in improving access to health, education, in creative industry, how it affects artists sales, how it impacts cultural diversity and more. Can it be used to improve well-being? How do kids see AI? What's the impact on jobs and what are the skills of the future?

Artificial Intelligence is nothing without your intelligence. We look forward to hearing you. Drop in to say hi!

Structure:

  • Hands-on experience with AI in a non-technical way
  • Examples from the field on how it is being deployed
  • Considerations for Nunavut creators and communities
  • How can communities respond (making sense)
  • Shared response - what's next?
  • Action and recommendations

This workshop is designed for ALL levels of technical expertise. Kids welcome. Refreshments available.

The AI games will be played at 9:30 AM and at 13:30 PM.

Thank you to Pinguaq and the Nunavut Art and Craft Association for their warm welcome.

This event is co-lead by Akoulina Connell, Jerrold McGrath and Valentine Goddard.

Brought to you by AI Impact Alliance and UKAI Projects.
