Beers & Innovation is having it's next outing as part of the Content 2.0 conference on 6th June 2006.
This time, Anthony H. Wilson will be taking on chairing duties for the night. Anthony who?
Well, it's the same Tony Wilson who set up Factory Records (Joy Division, New Order, Happy Mondays…) and who is the co-founder of the UK's annual music conference and convention In The City. He was seen most recently playing himself in the film adaptation of Tristram Shandy directed by Michael Winterbottom – A Cock & Bull Story.
User-created content & human rights activism
Having been granted exclusive rights by Yoko Ono to a number of classic John Lennon tracks, Amnesty have collaborated with a number of international artists – including Snow Patrol, Black-Eyed Peas, and The Cure – to re-record the songs for sale with all profits going to Make Some Noise.
Amnesty are now looking to integrate user-generated content into the campaign and Stephanie will be talking to Tony about this new approach.
Entry is included in ticket price for Content 2.0.
The daytime schedule runs to 5pm at the RSA, while Beers & Innovation @ Content 2.0 kicks-off 10 minutes walk down the road in the airy surroundings of Albannach, 66 Trafalgar Square, WC2N 5DS at 5.30pm.
The event will run 17.30 – 19.15, with the chance, as per usual, to stay on for further drinks and mingling afterwards.
