Cultural Digital Designer in Residence Project 2018

The aim of this project is to bring industry relevant support to schools and teachers who are interested in developing collaborative projects which fuse innovative digital design practice to the needs of the creative curriculum in schools. Each class that takes part is also partnered with a cultural organisation in the region, such as a museum or gallery. Manchester Art Gallery were the cultural partner with Falinge Park High school in Rochdale for the 2018 Cultural Digital Designer in Residence project.

Falinge Park High were reading The City of Ember by Jeanne Du Prau, exploring other worlds and using our South Asia design exhibition they worked with digital art student Natalija Stolarova to create Stop, Motion, Animations using storyboards as well as making character models.
