1. Background - SCAN

SCAN is a network consortium of 10 organisations in the UK (mainly based in
the South of England) who are working together to promote emergent,
collaborative and experimental practice using new and emergent technologies.
SCAN is committed to identifying new models of production and distribution
of artworks and other cultural products.

SCAN aims to provide an expansive and fertile space for artists,
practitioners, writers, audiences and organisations to engage with its
projects and initiatives. This will be provided through the SCAN website and
through the physical spaces in its member organizations. It is a unique
collaboration and will be a major resource for the development of practice,
projects and ideas.

The organisation was set up in 2001 as a platform for collaboration and
sharing of resources between the consortium members. 2003 sees a new phase
of development within SCAN through the appointment of a Director in January
2003, and the launch of a website and other activities including 9PIN in
September 2003. 9PIN will be pivotal in the development of SCAN and in
defining its role in relation to the consortium members.

Whilst SCAN is driven mainly by new media, it welcomes innovative ideas and
practice that also involve other forms. SCAN provides a network for
practitioners, information and opportunities, training, exhibition and
equipment to support the production of new work and educational initiatives
involving digital arts and/or hybrid practice. It is intended to be a focal
point for a wide spectrum of activity such as critical debate, community and
education projects, on-line journals and communities, collaborative arts
production and project partnerships between the private and public sectors.
