Inclusive workshops with young people within VisitorsStudio (Furtherfield.org’s artware for live collaborative audiovisual remix)
“It’s really a good experience. It’s nice to try to communicate with people in a different way. It’s nice to know that people on the other side of the world are, like, normal people… I have been to America but it’s not quite the same. You don’t get to know them; you see them briefly in shops and stuff. We actually got to know them on a personal level which is nice and interact with them. I look forward to doing it again; I really look forward to doing the live mixing at Watershed.” – Young participant from The Basement, Bristol
Participants: 15 young people from Tottenham; young people from Wood Green Playstation; 25 young people in The Basement, Bristol and The Point, in the Bronx, New York
Artists: Ruth Catlow and Melissa Bliss
Between 2005 and ’07 we ran a series of projects with young people within VisitorsStudio (Furtherfield.org’s artware for live collaborative audiovisual remix). These workshops were developed with Graziano Milano.
CoMix Workshops for 15 young people from Tottenham were lead by artists Graziano Milano and Michael Szpakowski in February 2007. Participants created image and audio files inspired by their locality and then performed their mixes to a live audience of approximately 200 friends, family and community and an online audience of 20 people to celebrate the official opening of the Bruce Grove Media Centre for Young People.
Lead Artists: Graziano Milano and Michael Szpakowski
Partners: Haringey Youth Services, Bruce Grove Media Centre for Young People
As part of our Game/Play exhibition we ran summer workshops at HTTP Gallery in July 2006, in which young people from Wood Green Playstation connected online and mixed their audiovisual files with young people from Q-Arts in Derby. Their performances were watched by audiences at Q-Arts.
Lead Artists: Ruth Catlow and Melissa Bliss
Partners: Q-Arts (now Quad), Haringey Youth Services, Wood Green Playstation
