Mobile social media, mobile technologies, production and aesthetics to be explored at MINA2013

From November 18 – 22, 2013 AUT University will be the home of a series of events exploring mobile technologies in film, education, business and creativity. The week begins with a two-day mobile filmmaking workshop, and moves into the Mobile Creativity and Mobile Innovation Symposium and International Mobile Innovation Screenings. The events are co-hosted by MINA (Mobile Innovation Network Aotearoa), Colab (AUT University) and School of Art & Design (AUT University) in collaboration with the School of Design at the College of Creative Arts (Massey University, Wellington). The 2013 MINA Symposium and Screening is centred around the question, ‘how are mobile and social media technologies used to create innovation through creative and cultural practices?’ and will seek to answer this question through presentations of papers, workshops, poster presentations, performances, project showcases and mobile screenings in situ and via live web-broadcasts. The key events are:
