Mac Birmingham have teamed up with creative network site Hiive for this open access programme geared towards aspiring creatives between 16-30. The series of events produced by Amy Martin and Yinka Danmole focusses on three themes: space and place, sustainability and the environment, and creative technology data and the internet. Artist talks, commissions, workshops and lectures are lined up to encourage participants to play, tinker and and develop their artistic practice, and a launch party featuring DJs, burgers and a gif-making booth kicks off the proceedings (July 31).
Programme highlights include Fashion Futures which explores the sustainability and ethics of the fashion industry and sees a panel discussion with designers and researchers take place, followed by a screening of 'The Next Black' which looks at the development of new approaches to creating clothes (Aug 8). Other sessions include a three day course led by Alison Neighbour called Exploring Scenographic Environments which focuses on uncovering the potential of environmental sites and materials to develop aesthetics for immersive performances. This course is non-ticketed and those wishing to take part must apply via the website.
