As part of the Latin(o) American Digital Art Project, our Artist in Residence, Brian Mackern, will be delivering two workshops during his residency in Liverpool in October 2014.
The first of these will be held on 8 October with Veterans in Practice , a Liverpool-based group of military veterans who work with FACT to produce creative digital projects.
The second will take place on 21 October with Freehand, FACT’s young people’s programme.
Although tailored to different groups, both workshops will take the shared theme of ‘The City as Interface’, and will focus on recording material – including sound, visual, written and graphic material. The material will be based upon the routes (imaginary or real) that the participants undertake in their immediate surroundings in the city of Liverpool, and will then be used to individual mappings.
As with much of Brian’s work, the activities in the workshop bring together digital space and real space. For more information on Brian’s work and the background behind these workshops, see:
