The studio is at the heart of Lighthouse, pioneering a new way of working between Lighthouse, creative talent, our partners and audiences.
Digital technology is changing the way work is conceived and produced, and the way people expect to engage with it. By providing an environment for the research, development and production of new work, the studio allows us to support a more open creative process that invites engagement from the audience throughout the journey. Residents also feature in our wider programme, through associated events, such as pop-up exhibitions, hack days, screenings and regular ‘show and tell’ sessions.
At the studio’s core is interdisciplinary practice, and collaboration between residents, partners and the wider Lighthouse community. The studio supports an emerging breed of practitioner working at the intersection of digital art, design, technology, science, film and the wider creative industries.
The studio will transform Lighthouse, and catalyse new audiences, partnerships and innovative new work in digital culture.
