WELCOME TO PLATFORMS RESIDENTS


26 January 2015

This week we welcome new residents to Lighthouse Studio, to take part in our Platforms programme.

Platforms is a new studio programme recently launched by Lighthouse, supported by Creative Skillset, which brings together creative practitioners from the fields of film, art, design, music, technology, and more, to develop and produce their own projects – projects that use online platforms to collaborate with peers or communities of interest, to raise funds, or build an audience, to distribute work and sell products.

Our new set of residents are artist and curator Sophie Giblin, digital engagement consultant Sophie Lucas, producer Elhum Shakerifar and film maker Maya Abdalla, sound designer Simon James and writer Neil Cargill. Their projects span online digital art platforms, interactive documentary, sound design and podcasting.

Workshops with residents will be led by John Willshire of Smithery, Matt Locke of Storythings, and Chris Unitt of onefurther, as well as the participants themselves.

We’re looking forward to sharing more about their time with us, so keep your eyes on our blog to track their progress.
