Designers and artists are at the forefront of experimentation with new technology. But how is growing up in a world saturated by new digital media changing the way we think, design and create?
Crowd Talks – in collaboration with Makerversity - discuss whether coding and programming, design for digital manufacture, and interactive design should be taught within schools and universities. How could an in-depth understanding of these processes alter creative thinking and the transition from student to professional within the creative industries?
Makerversity is a making and learning space based at Somerset House, providing affordable and accessible spaces for makers, experimenters, production and enterprise. www.makerversity.co.uk @makerversity
