The theme will be Lonely Cities and the Book Club following the event will be discussing Remediation: Understanding New Media by Jay David Bolter and Richard Grusin
Helix Arts is offering a £150 #HADADi bursary to an artist or digital entrepreneur to develop a digital presentation on the theme of Truth and Beauty.
The #HADADi April presentations at Campus North were striking and varied – and all had a connection with Truth and Beauty – intentionally or unintentionally!
There was the “speak your weight” device – which told Helix Arts CEO Catherine Hearne she truthfully weighed the same as a snow leopard. Thanks @alistair.
There was the Royal Television Society North East and the Borders Innovation Award winners – an artistic collaboration led by Dilly Arts. Truly beautiful animated drawings with stories based on the authentic experiences of men and women in North East prisons. The work resulted in a permanent museum exhibition at Hexham Old Gaol. Do see more about Beyond the Borders.
And then there was a debate about whether a photograph every 4 hours of a mug (or two mugs, truthfully!?) reveals whether the owner is really alive … or not?! Check out @_xs for more …
We offer #HADADi Bursary every three months thanks to the support of Newcastle University Institute for Creative Arts Practice (NICAP). #HADADi April presentations on Truth and Beauty may well have sparked some new ideas for you.
Why don’t you pitch an idea on the theme of Truth and Beauty to win July’s £150 #HADADi bursary?
Do email Catherine Hearne by Tuesday 11th April. Your pitch should fit on one side of A4 including a brief CV.
The winner will present their digital arts idea on Truth and Beauty at #HADADi Tuesday 11 July at Jam Jar Studios in Gateshead. The floor will then be open for presentations on the theme of Lonely Cities – or you may like to bring any other digital arts idea that you’ve just begun or just completed. Or you may be looking for a collaborator on a project? Or perhaps you’re running an event you’d like everyone to know about? #HADADi is your platform to share ideas about digital arts. Doors open 5pm and presentations kick off at 5:30pm.
#HADADi Book Group will follow in a nearby pub. We are reading Remediation: Understanding New Media by Jay David Bolter and Richard Grusin. Do come along.
We are delighted that Lalya Gaye won the first #HADADi Bursary for her digital art idea on persuasion.
Next #HADADi events are as follows:
All meetings start at 5.00 pm, with presentations kicking off at 5.30 pm. Free beer, wine, soft drinks and nibbles always available.
We are delighted that Newcastle Institute for Creative Practice is now supporting #HADADi.
