What should we do with big data?
Thursday 18th July / 11am-1pm
Freedom Works / Chatsworth Road / Worthing
More global data is created in 2 hours in 2019 than in the 5,000 years prior to 2013. So, now we’ve got it – what do we do with it?
The DRIVA arts DRIVA project is unlocking sets of unique, real-time big data and helping tech innovators to build from it and arts practitioners to create experiences from it.
In this free event, we’ll dig deep in to data – what data is available and how can it be used to create services, products and experiences – with talks from leading experts in data analytics.
Special guest speakers to be announced shortly

What is DRIVA arts DRIVA?
DRIVA (Digital Research & Innovation Value Accelerator) is a £1.3m University of Brighton research project funded by the European Structural Investment Fund and Arts Council England that aims to provide technology SMEs, creative arts practitioners and cultural organisations unprecedented access to Gatwick Airport’s big data.
We believe that the super-fusion of data-driven innovation and creative practice with access to artistic and scientific expertise can drive economic productivity, community impact and place-making in our region.
By unlocking the commercial, creative, social and/ or critical, value of data of from Gatwick Airport, and generating insights into the 50 million people who depart and arrive on our doorstep each year, we can accelerate the development of an untold range of new data-driven products, services, artworks and experiences.
Over the next two years, we’ll be providing free, intensive support, access to facilities, resources and expertise alongside cash awards to bring together hundreds of creative and technology organisations and practitioners to make the most of data as both material and currency.
