Abstract:

  • Digital technologies have not just changed the world, they are increasingly impacting children and youth all over the world. Childhood, learning and upbringing have changed dramatically over the last decades. And it is not going to stop. As UNICEF puts it, “digital technology is an irreversible fact of our lives”. [1] Yet we experience a Digital Gap between the adult generation born before the Internet and the Smartphone and those born after, the so called Digital Natives born after 2000. How to bridge this gap and include the younger generations into the field? What forms of electronic art speaks to Digital Natives today? How to include electronic art works in schools? The panel on Interactive Arts for Digital Natives discuss these and related questions. It is composed by an international expert group and will be led by Arts for Young Audiences Norway (AYA).

    Cecilie Lundsholt is artistic director of the regional state funded theatre “Teateret Vårt” (Our Theatre) in Norway, responsible for the repertoire aimed at audiences from zero to eighteen years old. Peter Lee will present the Nolgong Theater from Korea and their two interactive theatre projects. Charlotte B. Myrvold will present the electronic media art project FoNT (Dissemination Models and New Technology). Stahl Stenslie will head the panel and is the director of R&D at Arts for Young Audiences Norway (AYA), the Norwegian Ministry of Culture’s agency owning the national responsibility for The Cultural Schoolbag (TCS) program.
