Digital Earth, a global research network of artists and scholars, is hosting a two-day workshop in collaboration with Jameel Arts Centre to explore how technology influences not only interpersonal relationships but also contemporary geopolitics and our understanding of the world.

How do digital technologies shape the way we map and understand space in different regions around the world?

How have diverse worldviews, shaped by social and spiritual concerns, affected the way technologies have been developed and implemented across the globe?

These and other questions will be explored in a rich two-day programme of talks, screenings, panel discussions and performances. Confirmed speakers are James BridleFederico CampagnaClapperton Chakanetsa MavhungaArianne ContyWael EskandarVladan JolerJean Katambayi Mukendi, Brendan McGetrickNanjala NyabolaNishant Shah and Maarten Vanden Eynde.
