Join us for local food and drinks from Southside and get hands-on making with a bunch of like-minded folks interested in art and tech. This new monthly event aims to inspire emerging creatives and offer peer-to-peer tech support in a friendly, collaborative environment. Each workshop is different, featuring a different guest speaker and activities.

11th April 2017 – ‘Virtual Art – Opportunities and challenges’, led by Catherine Allen (@_catherineallen)

Are interested in exploring VR as a new artistic medium?

After her talk Catherine will lead participants in an ideas-generation session followed by a Q&A
