Phoenix Brighton received a Brighton Digital Festival Education Award to work with Alex May and Exploring Senses who created a two day workshop for thirty 13-19 year olds to hack toys, build a cardboard city for them to live in, create animations about them, and finally use Alex’s video mapping software to create a digital metropolis.
The workshop and final exhibition took place over the 18th and 19th of September 2015 in the main gallery of Phoenix Brighton.
