Back in Manchester for the annual FutureEverything festival. Or summit, as they called it this year. It’s quite fascinating how different the festival is from one year to another. Always very nice to catch up with old friends, bump into fellow Geordies, see some familiar faces and also meet some new ones. Didn’t get a chance to catch any of the amazing music programme this time around though. Sniff!
Lalya will soon start taking part in Shift, an internship programme for young creatives. She will be one of the expert mentors advising the interns and will be giving regular workshops about design for digital interactions in 3D physical space in general, and urban interaction design in particular.
Want to know more about it? Come to the Shift Live No.1 launch party for the programme, at Hoults Yard in Byker, Newcastle, on Thursday 28th March!
Attaya Projects was selected to be featured in this year’s Northern Design Festival, organised by Design Event. The festival’s theme will be Create:Digital and it will take place in Newcastle and Sunderland in October.
In Design Event’s own words:
“The festival celebrates the theme of digital and examines how advances in digital technologies over the last few years have had a huge impact across design. These technologies are the new tools and materials of the designer and enable the development of innovative works previously thought unachievable.”
We’ll be there reminiscing about the good ol’ days of black and white Atari screens and presenting some of our on-going projects at Attaya. We are however not currently in a position to reveal whether or not there will be any tap-dancing or ukuleles involved.
