After last year success of  ‘Hey There Pussycat‘ body>data>space team returns at Watermans Art Centre for another series of creative workshops.

Led and conceived  by body>data>space ‘Robots and Avatars’ project explores how young people will work and play with new representational forms of themselves and others in virtual and physical life in the next 10-15 years.

Our workshops are aimed at stimulating the soft and hard skills and knowledge that young people will need for their future careers and workplaces, such as the use of content creation software, audio-visual skills, 3D web design creation but also creativity, self-confidence, communication and  team work.
