Young people pit art against tech

This Easter over 70 young people aged 10-19 joined staff, artists and volunteers to give Knowle West Media Centre a digital makeover.

Project Piano was an experimental fusion of art, music and technology. Young people worked with volunteers to replace most of the piano strings with pots, pans and anything we could find that made a noise. Another team worked with staff to record live sounds and play them back through one octave of the piano using sensor pads, an arduino, and a laptop. You can visit the piano now at KWMC.

Other popular activities included playing and programming games on the Raspberry Pis, photography, a Wii Sports tournament, and workshops from Nth Camera and PiBot. Find out more about what happened at #artvstech

Photographer Kirsty Mackay took 40 beautiful portraits of children, young people and their families in Hengrove Park during the Easter holiday. They’re on display now in the KWMC studio. If you haven’t collected yours yet, please come and see us. Find your picture and it’s yours for free!

We’ll be bringing art and tech head to head again in May half term from 27th-30th May. Join us to make a collection of memories and bring their stories digitally to life.
