Connective Culture: August

Connective Culture: August

If you remember, Connective Culture is an Artswork funded project, joining the creative, digital & IT industry led by Tech Resort CIC, cultural sector led by Towner Gallery and Eastbourne Schools (Causeway, Ocklynge, Ratton & Willingdon).

We’ve had a busy few months with the students visiting Towner Gallery in April, the artists David Blandy & Seb Lee Delisle visiting schools in May, visits by web developer Andy Tyrell and photographer Phil Burrows to support student skills in June. We’ve also produced Tech Resort Teens (TRT) a creative computing club running on alternate weekends during June and July.

As part of the project we also hosted this year’s YRSEastbourne (Young Rewired State Festival of Code) at Cohub and were able to enter 3 projects (Boostify, Artophone & Game_001) during the weekend in Plymouth, 2 of which got into the semi finals.

We are now gearing up for the Connective Culture Exhibition in September and a couple of show and tells during the Brighton Digital Festival: Talent Slam and the Starr Hub event.
