I’m running some workshops in Glasgow, Scotland in Jan 07 for Urban Learning Space – We have Natalie Jeremijenko visiting us on 11th January and Jonah Brucker-Cohen and Katherine Moriwaki doing a Scrapyard Challenge on 17th January… details are:

Title: Designing Technology for Social Change, Conversation with Natalie Jeremijenko
Dates: 11th January 2007, 11am-4pm
Location: Vitra Conference Suite, The Lighthouse, Glasgow
Cost: £40 + VAT, includes lunch and all refreshments

Event information: A rare opportunity to meet Natalie Jeremijenko, a design engineer and techno-artist who produces multimedia installations that use robotics, genetic and digital engineering, electromechanics and interactive systems. Her work focuses on the design and analysis of tangible digital media to bridge the divide between the technical and art worlds.


Title: MIDI Scrapyard Challenge, with Jonah Brucker-Cohen and Katherine Moriwaki
Dates: 17th January 2007, 9am-8pm
Location: Education Workshop, The Lighthouse
Cost: £75 + VAT (includes all materials, lunch, refresments and evening reception)

Event information: An intensive, one-day workshop in which participants build simple electronic projects out of found or discarded “junk” such as old electronics, clothing, furniture, outdated computer equipment, appliances, turntables, monitors, gadgets. The Scrapyard Challenge shows how easy it is to re-use technology and make it serve a new purpose. The ultimate aim of the Challenge is to encourage an open and collaborative space for creative ideas and hands-on prototyping. Special showcase of built creations at the end, with David Bernard.

I’m getting a fair few people saying it’s not often we do events like this in Scotland and so I’m keen to show that there is lots going on at Urban Learning Space!
