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)

Duncan was involved in the creation of the hugely successful iphone game, Papa Sangre.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
