Want to stay ahead of the Game?

First you need to know the rules and how to break them.

To investigate play, Make and Do in collaboration with Project Arts Centre and D.A.T.A 2.0 @ the Science Gallery will host a two day investigation into performance, technology and play.

In an increasingly digitised world, where do we look for meaning and how do we express this? How do we as artists, performers and urban play designers respond to and express these changes? What happens when the space that we work in is constantly shifting? Who are the players and what game are we really playing?

To help answer these questions, Make and Do have invited international artists Duncan Speakman and Peter Petralia from Proto-type to lead workshops in locative play, urban and digital games and interactive performance. We will also include talks with interesting digital artists working in Dublin who we believe are pushing the boundaries of human interaction with technology.

The workshops are aimed at professional theatre-makers, live performers, digital artists and game designers/creators who wish to explore the boundaries of live performance, technology, and interactive games.

Venue: Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin.

Price: 2 days 100 Euro (includes entry to DATA talk on the 28th)

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
