Anthony D’Offay & Jeremy Deller in Conversation

The talk took place at Modern Art Oxford on 5 February 2015.

Ed Vaizey & Digital Oxford


On Wednesday 28 January 2015, we opened our doors to Digital Oxford, a hub bringing together technologically creative minds. Throughout the evening, we had over 300 guests mingling, learning and most importantly, connecting. Ed Vaizey, MP for Didcot and Wantage, had an extra special message for our audience and Digital Oxford have kindly allowed us to share it with you.

As a city, Oxford has the global exposure, digital heritage, intellectual and cultural capital to attract the world’s brightest minds, connecting industries from healthcare and automotive to coding and creativity. In fact, this isn’t an ambition. It’s a reality. Oxford is already home to some of the world’s leading technology. We just need to let the world know about it. And that starts at home.

This is what Digital Oxford aims to do. Find out more here:

At Modern Art Oxford we are proud to have hosted the launch event for Digital Oxford, and look forward to being a part of its future.

Thanks also to Oxford Digital Media for filming.

Perspectives: Myth


On 15 January 2015, we hosted a night of discussions on myths and myth making from the roots of medieval tales to our collective capacity for fiction and how myths are made in contemporary culture. Speakers included Prof. Lisa Bortolotti, and Dr Finola Kerrigan, of The University of Birmingham.
