As part of our 10-days long showcase at B&D Studios during Design Event‘s Northern Design Festival, Teresa Almeida and Lalya Gaye will be holding a free, hands-on, DIY creative technologies workshop on 12th October at B&D, where you are invited to join us and explore the intersection of electronics, design and traditional craft, during one afternoon.
During ten days (from 10-19 October), we will inhabit the space of B&D Studios, redecorate it with interactive installations, demos of work-in-progress, and have a chill-out salon area where we’ll welcome visitors with a nice cup of West-African Attaya tea and traditional Swedish cookies (Why, you ask? Because they’re tasty! Yum yum yum).
Mapping Festival is an annual digital media arts festival promoting “visual, audio and deviant electronics”. Or in short: digital visual arts and VJ culture. This is the 9th edition of the festival. It was about time we go check it out!
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!
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.”
