Stop looking at your phone and make something with it.
Why are only 10% of Tik Tok users creators? Why aren’t we using our phones to express ourselves and how can we start getting creative? In this inspiring talk Tom will present some of the innovative digital projects he has been involved with shaping followed by a discussion on the creative potential of that tech in your back pocket and seeing your mobile phone as a portable art studio.
Part of JUPITER+ Ayr public programme
This talk is free to attend and takes place at 53 High St, Ayr, KA7 1LT
