Which place comes to mind when you think of home? Let’s find it together through the world of video games!

About this event

What

In these special sessions of Do Something Saturdays, collaborate virtually with artist Danielle Brathwaithe-Shirley to create a video game map made of the places you know and love. Do something new each week: learn about 3D modelling, dive into the world of video game mapping and play games created by the artist on the big cinema screen in The Box.

Come along with the family to discover new exciting activities and get ready to make some art about the place that matters to you the most.

Your conversations, creations and ideas will feature in a new artwork by the artist and shown in one of our galleries.

Danielle is an artist and archivist who uses video games, animation, sound and performance to create work celebrating trans Black people. Find out more about her work at www.daniellebrathwaiteshirley.com
