Happenstance Project launched

Happenstance aims to change the way arts organisations relate to technology. In 2012, we will host six technology residencies at three of the UK’s most vibrant arts organisations: Site Gallery in Sheffield, Lighthouse in Brighton and the newly announced Spike Island in Bristol. The project is being run with technology partner Caper and research partner of the University of Warwick.

The search is now on for some amazing technologists to apply for the residencies. Applicants have until 10am on Monday 30th January 2012 to get their applications in. Each residency will be an opportunity to think, make and prototype digital projects and products as part of a small creative team. We’re looking for people who are creative thinkers, don’t mind getting their hands dirty (!), can communicate well and share their processes and thinking and can work in an Agile way. Find out more of the new website >> http://happenstanceproject.com

We’ve been talking about ‘agile project management’ – a common practice in technology development teams but less so in the arts. Developing an agile approach to technology, and making digital products in the way we would usually make art, is one of the things we want to experiment with, so the process of making will be just as important as the things we make.  You’ll hear much more from us on this as we begin the activity but the basics –  making, talking, trying things out – the process has equal weighting to the finished product. You can follow the project as it progresses on our blog >>http://happenstanceproject.com
