1525 x Near Now: Animation Technologies WorkshopPast, Young People Mon 17 Feb, 5pm–8pm
Open to all 15-25 year olds
Explore Future Technologies and enhance your creative practice by learning how to animate using easy and intuitive tools in this workshop lead by Broadway’s Near Now Studio member and artist Trevor Woolery.
Using Tagtool, an app that enables the creation of animations right at your fingertips, we’ll be making our own live animated visuals to accompany music and performance. Tagtool allows for iPads to be networked together, enabling easy collaboration between artists, supporting our collective desires to experiment and collaborate with fellow artists.
