A playground for new ideas
From a playground filled with battling robots and fabulous beasts, to an interactive light garden, haunted study and enchanted library. Get lost in a bio-activated maze, dance with Elvis and reimagine our digital future.
For three days in November, we will be creating a Playground for New Ideas in the old Firestation, Magistrates Courts and Police Station in Bristol City Centre. Alongside a series of interactive installations, we will be hosting an exciting programme of free talks, workshops, film screenings and house parties.
THE ROOMS is brought to you by REACT, the creative economy hub for the South West & Wales. Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, REACT has invested in collaboration, cultural experimentation and creative innovation between University researchers and creative businesses, supporting them to make new kinds of digital products and experience. Now, with a portfolio of 53 projects, it’s time to celebrate all of this brilliant work and look to the future.
REACT is a collaboration between the University of the West of England, Watershed, and the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter, and is one of Four UK Knowledge Exchange Hubs for the Creative Economy funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
