Event description

Description

Join us for an interactive evening exploring how technology can help make Porth Teigr a place where people want to live, work and play.

This free, outdoor promenade event follows a 6 month research project exploring the physical & digital layers of Porth Teigr as an emerging development.

Play with a series of interactive demos we’ve developed to illustrate practical examples of digital placemaking ideas: download an audio trail app and be treated to a reimagining of the history of the Lock Keeper's cottage; peer through Augmented Reality binoculars to see the future of Porth Teigr and meet our prototype ‘Digital Town Crier’. Most importantly, share YOUR ideas on how we might shape Porth Teigr’s digital+physical future.

We’ll also be hosting organisations and individuals who are already doing great work in this space including The Architecture Centre and So Much Depends Upon (an arts/technology project led by the Humanities Research Institute at the University of South Wales in partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University)

Refreshments will be provided for ticket holders.

Please like our Facebook event page for more information and live updates.
