#disruptivebyte – Open Citizens
14th December 2016
10-11am

Read More

Dom Breadmore has been leading on a partnership project routed in art/technology and new pedagogies for university outreach and widening participation. The project is called Open Citizens and was funded by Think Higher (of which Coventry University is a partner) and worked with GCSE citizenship students, BA Digital Media Students, an arts organisation and the Coventry Fab Lab to look at how an interdisciplinary approach to STEM subjects might enable active citizenship in young people. The project is about to be profiled by the EC as a model of best practice and hopefully the write up will also feature as a guest blog on a few international sites.

Join us on the DMLL Grass on the 14th of November from 10:30 until 11:15 to explore the Open Citizens project with Dom and don’t forget to tweet your note using #disruptivebytes.

You can find Dom on Twitter at @predacomDom
