Newcastle 2014

The first ever edition of This Way Up: Exhibition Innovation took place at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle on 2-3 December 2014. Attended by over 130 delegates and speakers from cinemas, festivals, community venues, arts centres across the UK who listened to provocations and debated ideas, shared their stories and learnt from each other. Topics ranged widely from the discussing the challenges and opportunities facing programmers as audiences have more and more choice, and the rise of the second-screen and social media in the cinema space, to how to harness challenging concepts and new thinking about using data and digital to reach audiences.

Oh, and we all came together to lose badly at a communal game of Renga.
