body>data>space has been invited by the British Council Estonia to run workshops on Avatars and Virtual Worlds from 4th to to 6th October in Tallinn as part of the Vaba Linn (Free City) programme that will culminate with a conference at the end of October.

Led by Leanne Hammacott, Michael Takeo Magruder and Drew Baker, the workshop will be linked to Visions of Our Communal Dreams (Robots and Avatars Commission) to give participants the opportunity to develop digital media skills and processes and to use these newly learned skills to collaborate with members of the Visions of Our Communal Dreams creative team to develop resources for the artwork’s communal virtual forest.

These collaborative outcomes will be integrated into the Visions of Our Communal Dreams art installation in taking place in Tallinn later in October 2013.

The workshop takes place at Estonian Academy of Arts and is organised by Kultuurikatel Hub & Labs, Estonian Academy of Arts & British Council in Estonia.
