ISEA2013 workshop

26 04 2013

Just saw this great workshop as part of ISEA2013. So disappointed that I won’t be able to participate.

If you are interested in the connected themes of art, education,  technology and sustainability, try to get to this event.
 
I can vouch for the great energy and ideas of Nina Czegledy, Ian Clothier and Nigel Helyer and the other workshop leaders look fantastic too.

Here’s the blurb:
