Principal purpose of the job
To develop, initiate and manage all aspects of folly's unique new project Portable Pixel Playground for 2 years.
folly is a leading digital arts organisation, based in the North West of England. folly's Portable Pixel Playground will be an innovative and physical new play space that is intrinsically digital. The playground will be a modular set of equipment and creative projects for use in public settings such as shopping centres, galleries and schools. The concept is a radical evolutionary development of folly's existing follyplay events which feature laptops, computer kiosks and interactive projections on walls, floors and ceilings. The Pixel Playground will encourage young people to use everyday technologies in new and creative ways, providing them with interactive, physical and hands-on new experiences of art and technology. folly is developing the playground over the next 2 years by working with artists, staff and technologists supported by the funding from The Big Lottery Fund as part of their "Playful Ideas" Programme.
