Contented presents the Ontente co-productions, a cross-disciplinary investment in technology and business development. Here, your delegates can cultivate networks alongside cultural and trade events while experimenting with digital media content to engage international audiences and customers.  Join like-minded professionals, taking time out to develop yourself and your career, carrying out creative research and development while exploring an enterprise, project or co-production to develop back home. Our international partnerships enable us to offer a wide range of experiences in research and innovation in the UK and abroad.  

Learning objectives

Participants will:
• Practise techniques for engaging audiences through digital storytelling;
• Develop capacity to communicate, facilitate, lead and manage compassionately;
• Broaden and deepen understanding of sustainability and the case for responsible business & production.

Join our Crowd

If you’re interested but unable to travel on the dates available, we are offering the chance to be part of the crowd and experience the learning journey of the delegates. You will be invited to review pitches and offer constructive criticism — in return for which the group will share with you their insights into what works best.
