Boo Chapple introduced us to the Open CuRate It project back in February on the FACT blog. It is a project in collaboration with FACT that looks at how curation is changing in online culture and trying to make FACT a more open space. So far the project has brought a digital printer into the FACT building as well as hosting a range of dicussion events

Augmented Reality Layar Workshops

21 & 22 May / 6pm - 8pm / Media Lab

Next week Open CuRate It will be hosting two workshops to be by Tamiko Thiel, of Manifest.AR. Over the two sessions, participants will learn how to create simple location-based Augmented Reality (AR) artworks using the free platform Layar. The first evening will teach the basics of location-based AR; on the second evening partipants should bring material to create their own works which we will place in FACT and the surrounding city. If you are interested and would like a place, email boo.chapple@fact.co.uk.

Reframe It Seminar

23 May / 6.30pm - 9pm / The Box

Three presenters, Tamiko Tiel, Graham Harwood and Michelle Henning will join Open CuRate It to ask, "is the constant framing, or reframing, of our experience through media and data systems a form of contemporary curation? What are the potential futures for artists, curators, and arts institutions in these emerging technologies and practices?" Each presenter will bring their own unique perspective, and practice, to the table in thinking about these questions.
