SCHOOLS WORKSHOP WITH NATALIA BUCKLEY
BRIGHTON DIGITAL FESTIVAL 2012
INSPIRATIONAL TALKS AND WORKSHOPS BY LEADING TECHNOLOGY EXPERTS AT BRIGHTON SCHOOLS
As part of Brighton Digital Festival 2012, Lighthouse has created a programme of exciting events for young people to take part in, working with artists and technologists to learn about and experiment with technology in creative ways.
Students from Varndean High School and Brighton Aldridge Community Academy will work with local creative technologist Natalia Buckley to explore coding and making, to create their own original work.
Students will have the opportunity to build their own games and hack code, using coding to solve problems creatively. The session is a response to David Blandy’s exhibition Odysseys which contains a number of reworked computer games that have been adapted by Blandy. Students will also make a visit to Blandy’s Odysseys exhibition at Phoenix Brighton, where they will get to learn more about Blandy’s artwork.
Natalia Buckley is an interaction designer and developer based in Brighton. She is interested in exploring the ways in which we interact with technology, and how in turn our technologies shape the way we live. Natalia graduated from Goldsmiths with a BA in Design, and since then has worked for Flockedu and Yarned, and as an independent developer and designer. In her spare time Natalia plays with electronics and builds digital ephemera.
Dates: 18, 25 and 27 September 2012
Venue: Varndean High School, Brighton Aldridge Community Academy and Phoenix Brighton
