New Gamechanging Project for Bolsover

New Gamechanging Project for Bolsover

Junction Arts is launching a new digital programme for Bolsover this summer, which aims to develop digital skills and creativity in the town!

The project is called Gamechanger and is in partnership with the Freedom charity, it will include 11 community sessions to help participants build their digital confidence, reduce social isolation and improve employability.  Participants in the projects will learn about and try their hand at podcasting, video production, animation, design, and digital online software.

As well as learning new skills, those taking part in the programme will also see their digital work become part of Junction Art’s light show, Bright Winter Nights at Bolsover Castle in November.

 

The project content will be based around the question ‘How did you grow up using this space?’ Exploring local issues such as flooding, lack of green space, and environmental concerns, to find positive solutions to the problems.

Junction Arts Project Manager Kylie North said: “We’re excited to launch our new project Gamechanger, which will bring important digital skills to Bolsover, but it will also be a space for people to get creative, interact with the community and ultimately, be part of our amazing immersive light show, Bright Winter Nights!

“Participants will explore everything from podcasting to AI, developing their skills and improving their employability in the modern world. The project will culminate in their work being projected onto the walls of Bolsover Castle – giving everyone involved a sense of achievement and lasting confidence to achieve their next goal.”
