United We Act brings together an investigation into the topic of connected communities by the Creative Media group and the Social Sciences Perspective of the Social Inclusion through the Digital Economy (SiDE) research project based at Culture Lab, Newcastle.
This publication gathers together the main aspects of the study consisting of the final report ‘Situating Communities through Creative Technologies and Practice’ and the expressions of interest of the participants for the September 2011 international interdisciplinary symposium.
The report explores the relation between creative uses of digital technologies and the notion of connected communities; and the symposium expanded on this by opening up the dialogue on the topic to international experts from various disciplines, grass-roots community workers, and the general public. In addition we provide an extended bibliography as a research tool on the topic and suggestions for future research.
