What is DotYork?

A one-day conference for curious minds, returning for its fifth year for 2018, as part of York Mediale.

This year, we’re turning spotlight on the work we all do and its impact on the world - and people - around us.

You’ll hear short talks from (and take part in discussion with) 16 speakers sharing their experience on this years topics of Identity (people), Money (trust), Freedom (data/privacy) and Survival (ethics & sustainability).

Who is it for?

DotYork is ideal for people working in digital & creative industries that like to think differently about who they are and what they do.

This isn’t a technical conference, there won’t be any code on screens or complex how-to’s. Instead, our talks will become talking points set to intrigue, inspire and challenge the way you think about your work.

We’ve stepped up our efforts to make DotYork a conference for everyone - accessible venues, live captioning, on-site childcare and more.

What can I expect?

An unconventional format (short talks & discussions), unheard voices, safe-space conversations and a stream of big ideas and insights you can’t get anywhere else.

So much of DotYork is unprepared, live, honest conversation. You’ve got a group of real speakers, sharing their experiences, and an engaged audience of 300 curious minds, colliding their respetive fields together in real-time, in one day.

Where is it?

York! Specifically, York Museum Gardens - 10 acres of botanical gardens right by the river ouse and just a 10 minute walk from York Station.

Don’t worry, it won’t be outside. Inside the gardens are a 300-seat purpose built theatre and a 14th century listed building that we’ll be using for registration, breaks and lunch.

Who doesn’t want to consider the impact of their work on the future set in the ruins of an 11th century abbey!
