Event Details

10am – 4pm Saturday 25th November 

Join us for a big, wild day of AI! In this full-day workshop, we delve into the shifting realm of generative AI and how to bring these new tools into your classroom. Discover how fresh evolutions with AI are intersecting storytelling, production, prototyping and artistic processes, as well as how to leverage this technology within your own workflow. This session provides a balanced exploration of AI’s impact on the industry in 2023, while including live demonstrations of generative AI processes.

By the end of the day, we will have all created a fully-realised creative project, built completely with generative AI (scripted, edited, visualised, with generated music and all!)

The workshop will cover:

  • Overview of AI and the Creative Industries 2023
  • Positive and Negative Use-Cases
  • AI in our everyday lives
  • Class Activities:
    • ChatGPT
