"If a thing is worth doing it's worth doing badly."
Currently leading on digital suss-Digital Literacy for the Nation-a participatory art project.
This will be an informal ‘digital learning pop up’ in a disused shop to be accompanied by a book and exhibition at the end of the project in the same space which I propose will run for roughly a month – the book will be an ABC of Social Media in the style of the ‘Ant and Bee’ books-the book will be co-created by the artist team and local people involved in the project. The book is about the young teaching the old about Social Media and digital technologies.
The pop up space will be a forum for interested people-be they youngsters into making digital music or older people who want to keep in touch with their grandchildren. We aim to be cross-generational. At The Magdalen Street Festival in Norwich we recently successfully piloted this idea and used the day’s event as an incubation space for testing our ideas with the local people who came along to enjoy the events at the festival. It went well and we received some interesting and worthwhile feedback, which will assist in taking the project forward.
