Trigger Shift works with young people in North East England and some of the best programmers and designers in the world to create something ground-breaking.
It is fundamentally built around encouraging and enabling the use of consumer technology to create, rather than just consume.
We believe consumer technology can be used for creating, not just consuming. We intend to develop open, free and accessible platforms for artistic creation with audio, video and movement.
We have put together a collaborative artistic team from leaders in the fields of interactive and digital media, who are now working closely with a team of young people in the North East.
This is the pilot phase of the project, and so further opportunities for young people to get involved should be available soon. Sign up at www.triggershift.org to be kept up to date.
The project is led by Tom Higham (pictured below), with other team members including: Tom Schofield, Memo Akten, Annie Rigby and Ed Carter.
