#artvstech Round Two

Knowle West Media Centre will be putting Art and Tech head to head for a second time this half term.  Join us to create a collection of memories and bring your stories to life – digitally!

On Tuesday 27th May Ludic Rooms will join us again for a day of mapping, getting lost, and finding our way again. Help us to find the answers to questions like: “How many scooter lengths from Knowle West Children’s Centre to KWMC?” and create new ways of measuring Knowle West.

Work with artists Pippa and Fiona on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th May to find and design interesting objects triggered by memories. Use new materials to re-cast found objects, and use Fiona’s laser cutter to make your designs.

On Friday 30th May join the KWMC Young People’s Team to make a sound story or audio clip of your favourite memory. Use Google Maps to make a map of memories and bring it to life with your creativity through craft work, drawing and more.

The Young People’s Team will be on hand all week to help you create films and other digital records of the memories you collect. There will also be all the things you would expect from a week of KWMC activities: more Raspberry Pi’s, more Littlebits, more music, more photography…

  • All activities are free.
  • Knowle West Media Centre, 27th – 30th May 2014, 10am-3pm. Ages 10-19. Please bring a packed lunch.
  • To book your place call 0117 903 0444.



Google, games and gadgets

Interested in making your own computer games and experimenting with technology?

KWMC is about to launch a new ten-week project for young people aged 11-17. As part of  ‘Generating Genius’, 10 young people will be learning how to use Raspberry Pis and create their own computer game. The Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer about the size of a credit-card. It was developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation alongside Google and a number of science organisations with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools and educational institutions.

During the project young people will have the opportunity to visit Google headquarters in London and the project will end with a games night.

Spaces are limited so contact for more details. ‘Generating Genius’ begins on Monday 10th February, 5-6.30pm, and will run until May.

The Generating Genius project is a collaboration between KWMC and the University of Bristol, made possible by Google and Generating Genius.
