SPRUNGDIGI AT LIGHTHOUSE
BRIGHTON DIGITAL FESTIVAL 2015
10 - 11 SEPTEMBER 2015
JOIN SPRUNGDIGI AT LIGHTHOUSE FOR AN EXPLORATION OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN DISABILITY AND DIGITAL COLLIDE
Lighthouse is delighted to host two events by SprungDigi, a mentoring programme for learning disabled artists from Brighton, Guildford and Horsham.
SprungDigi is curated and produced by Sarah Pickthall and her collaborators, shaped by learning disabled artists, and presented in partnership with Lighthouse.
A huge success for them this year was the inaugural SprungDigi Digital Arts Festival, held in Horsham, which “saw 15 people with learning disabilities work with Pickthall and other inclusive arts and digital experts in creative workshops in schools, day centres and clubs,” The Guardian.
For Brighton Digital Festival 2015, the group present ShortCircuit and SprungDigi Dares You!
On Day 1 is ShortCircuit, an evening of screenings, new artworks and discussion featuring deaf dance artist Chisato Minamimura, animator Dave Packer, sound artist Wesley Goatley and digital artist Jon Adams.
On Day 2, SprungDigi Dares You! is an action-packed day of participatory events, designed to get visitors actively involved in creating digital artworks. More information coming soon. Can’t make it? Follow the action on the live stream by People in I.T.
