Meet the Cashback artists: Edinburgh's digital artist Jamie Wardrop
One week until Cashback to the Future workshops kick off in Edinburgh, Glasgow in Ayrshire, and we're putting the spotlight on another of the incredible talents signed up to deliver the programme!
Jamie Wardrop, a multidisciplinary artist with a glowing track record, will be working with 14-19 year olds as part of these free workshops between 11th July and 4th August 2017.
Jamie draws on a wealth of experience, from film to 3D animation, live projection mapping, installation, theatre and composing. Touring nationally and internationally, he has created work for T In the Park, the Tramway and Battersea Arts Centre amonst many more.
His show The Dwelling Place was also presented at the Fringe and the Hidden Door Festival to critical acclaim in 2017. He is director of Glasgow Theatre And Arts Collective, a studio that supports creative professionals through access to affordable rehearsal space.
"I love to bring events and spaces to life," says Jamie, "and will be sharing techniques I've used across my career, including theatre and club nights."
Jamie will lead digital art workshops, leading up to the project's grand finale on Thursday 3rd August at the National Museum of Scotland.
What can participants expect? "I will be looking at how digital arts can be integrated into live performance. Those taking part will be invited to experiment and collaborate with me, giving them the tools and ideas to stage their own exciting events."
With the project starting next Tuesday, there are still spaces left on this programme. Participation is entirely free. To find out more, please visit the Cashback section of the website.
