This March we will be collaborating with the Belfast Strategic Partnership and BEAMA to deliver two workshops as part of their Family Friendly Belfast initiative. We’ll be taking up residence at St George’s Market on Saturday 11th March to host two digital art workshops, promoting healthy eating, local produce and citywide connectivity. The workshops take place from 10am-12pm and 12.30pm-2.30pm in the legendary St George’s Market in Belfast. 

The first workshop, from 10am-12pm, will be a digital animation session where participants will get the opportunity to create their own digital animation using local produce from the market, based on the theme of citywide connectivity, so get prepared for potatoes cycling past City Hall and leeks in a boat on the Lagan.

The second workshop will take place from 12.30pm-2.30pm and will see local produce from the market transformed into musical instruments, for a digital fruit and vegetable orchestra. We will use the state of the art Makey Makey technology to turn everyday fruit and vegetables into playable musical instruments. Participants will get the chance to play the instruments and record their own piece of digital music, using the fruit and veg instruments.
Both workshops are free, open to all ages and all equipment for both workshops will be provided, including iPads, animation materials and all the fresh local produce from around the market.
