Here’s the latest from our friends at Exploring Senses, who have been making use of their funding to deliver over twenty free Toy Hacking events.
Exploring Senses – CommuniToy launch
The national campaign to get people toy hacking CommuniToy will be launched at Designersblock during London Design week 19th-23rd September 2012. At this event there will be a Toy Hacking exhibition, and series of Toy Hacking workshops located inside the Royal Festival Hall/Southbank Centre. We will also be providing a free Robot Relays workshop there on Sunday 23rd. ES will be talking about CommuniToy in Brighton and Hove at City Camp 2.5.
Exploring Senses – Progression support needed
In September ES are starting to work with young people to make digital animations. We plan to turn this into a citywide project. The films will be shown at BYC art events including Occupy (27th October 2012) and during the Brighton Fringe International Youth Arts Festival in May 2013. ES would like to also launch all of this and more at your event. We understand the importance of social media and would appreciate your help in helping turn our idea, activities and events into real successes.
The CityCamp 2012 funding has helped ES achieve successful city wide outreach and beyond, by delivering over twenty free Toy Hacking events in Brighton, Hove, Leeds and Exeter, and we wish to expand further. We would love some support with social media and equipment (hardware) to successfully deliver our future projects. All help from the CityCamp community is welcome.
