There's a revolution underway in the arts world. Organisations big and small are deploying digital technology to create lively communities way beyond their geographical location and to produce a new and wonderfully diverse generation of public service content. They are also marketing themselves more effectively than ever before. At The Media Festival Arts you'll hear from some of the most imaginative pioneers in this online world. They'll explain the levels on connectivity and engagement that they're achieving and the dynamic delivery of public value that is the result.
