Established in 2018, SWCTN has supported research and development (R&D) in emerging technologies. Exploring the themes of Immersion, Automation and Data. SWCTN's focus on creative technology brings together arts, design, computer sciences, engineering and business development to deliver new products and services.

The SWCTN network is made up a rich mix of established and developing researchers, artists, technologists, businesses and practitioners from across the region, representing multiple disciplines and industries.
SWCTN is underpinned by the concept and practice of ‘cultural ecology’, by cultivating and connecting diverse networks of people, places, communities and resources across the region.
