Been a bit quiet on the blog front. Reckon we owe you a catch up, so here goes:

My City, My Art

With Pecha Kucha Coventry, we’re organising a web-enabled artists conference as part of the Twin Story project – linking up artists in Coventry and its twin city Volgograd. Entitled ‘My City, My Art’, the event is in two parts – the first half is powered by Pecha Kucha and the second relies on the magic of skype! It’s an event for artists, and those interested in the way cities inspire them – we’d love you to join us.

When: 1 March 2016 15:00 – 17.00
Where: The Tin Music & Arts, Canal Basin, Leicester Row, Coventry

The Difference Engine

We’re delighted to announce that the Paul Hamlyn Foundation has invested in a years worth of development on the Difference Engine. This means that we are currently recruiting a technologist to work alongside us and we will shortly be getting in touch with companies (and audience members!) who want to partner us in testing it (Hurray!).

Complicite are continuing to use the Difference Engine to caption their extraordinary binaural show, The Encounter. It is at the Barbican at the moment and heading up to Home in Manchester in March.
