Digital Youth Mobilities

The Garnethill Digital Youth Mobilities project would like to extend an invitation to the Garnethill Community to come to their end of project celebration. The project’s participants will be presenting their work, there will be some activities and then a round-up about the research project by the researchers and artists — and participants if they are willing!

YOMO would also like to thank all those for their early interest in the project, and also for help in finding participants.

Please let them know if you’re able to come so they can organise catering.

 

“Over the past month and a half we’ve met for five sessions to discuss our digital lives, create art, share food and research the digital world. You are invited to come and see what we’ve made, what we’ve learnt, share some food and fun!”

Please see the poster and website for full details:
