ART // TECH // PLAY is led by Collusion, a not for profit arts organisation that works with artists to deliver projects involving digital technologies.

Last week we hosted a two-day practice session which gave artists working in all art forms the chance to get hands-on with emerging digital technologies to better understand how it might be used in their work.

The five artists involved got the chance to play and explore with organic materials and technical equipment which culminated in a final audio, visual & dance collaboration.

The next ART // TECH // PLAY session will be Monday 6 September from 6pm which will include visual projection tools, interactive augmented reality, motion tracking with Kinect and cool sounds!  Info and tickets 

This autumn, Collusion is also running a series of five online workshops for artists covering a range of creative technologies. Designed as an introduction to a topic, each provides an overview including key hardware and software. The workshops last between 90 minutes and two hours and can accommodate a variable number of artists due to the type of practical exercises included.

Thurs 02 September – 1.30 to 3.30pm // Introduction to green screen and virtual production 

Mon 06 September – 1.30 to 3.30pm // Introduction to visual mixing for arts projects 

Tues 14 September – 1.30 to 3.30pm // Introduction to planning an arts project involving technology
