ShortCircuit – Revisited

6.30-9pm 10th Sept 2015

6.30-9pm 10th Sept 2015

Hardly seems possible that two years have past since Jo Verrent and myself showcased @DigitalBrighton 4 of our ShortCircuit Arts Council, South East ActionResarch collaborations at Lighthouse Arts.

What better time to tap into the wonder of what happens when disability and digital collide than 2 years on to the day, focusing on two of our original ShortCircuit artists: Chisato Minamimura & Jon Adams, both of who took the kernals of ideas hatched at ShortCircuit nurturing them into fully fledged projects with their wonderful digital partners in furtive studios and on the streets.  Not only that Jon Pratty who helped Jo and I develop this line of enquiry will be chairing in his new role as Chair of Brighton Digital Festival.

We’ll be sharing their work tomorrow at Lighthouse in a special event, surrounded by other shortcircuitry from the recent SprungDigi Festival. We’ll be considering the wider context too of this work that sings The Creative Case for Diversity, We don’t just want bums on seats we want you to be part of the conversation.    You can book yourself a FREE ticket for the event here, but do so quick before all the tickets run out.

A wonderful evening of showcase, talks, films discussions and all sorts of visionary collisionary. Be there.
