Urban Screens Melbourne 08 (USM08) is the third international conference and exhibition of urban screens, following on from the inaugural conference in Amsterdam in 2005 and Manchester in 2007.
The Mobile Publics conference addresses the themes of art, technology and public space, public broadcasting, strategies for urban regeneration, and cross-cultural public networks in the context of Urban Screens. A dynamic outdoor multimedia public program will take place around Federation Square, a unique place where various media tools have been incorporated into a modern public space. It will demonstrate the wide range of possible content for urban screens, ranging from public discussions, live streaming, film, video and animation programs, VJ sets, and interactive art.
