Connecting you to the future
Our Digital City – This is Us in 2010!!
22nd July 2010
WHEN: FRIDAY 23RD JULY, 10am to 4pm
WHERE: VICTORIA SQUARE, BIRMINGHAM
WHAT: LAUNCH OF DIGITAL TIME CAPSULE
Digital Birmingham would like to invite you to come to the launch of Our Digital City – this is us in 2010, an online ‘digital snapshot’ of Birmingham in 2010 to be created by anyone with an interest in the city.
Digital Birmingham together with Say Hello, Arts Council England and Birmingham City Council are appealing to Birmingham residents, schools, businesses, families, organisations and individuals to help create an online DIGITAL TIME CAPSULE that will encapsulate memorably images, videos, recordings, and texts. The capsule won’t get buried and won’t need to be opened – but will be there for anyone to see, any time of day, from anywhere in the world with an online connection.
The Digital time capsule is being launched as part of this weekend’s Cultural Olympiad events and will be open for entries for the rest of the year. The target is to achieve 5000 entries by December 31st.
We’d like you to be one of the first to upload a moment of your choosing – and have a chance to chat to Michael Collie from Midlands Today to tell him about your memorable moment and what you’ve uploaded to www.ourdigitalcity.me.uk.
The whole team will be in Victoria Square from 10am to 4pm tomorrow and we’re looking forward to meeting you!
