We arrange events that bring visual and sonic artists from across the country to the Tinderbox Lab to offer a range of workshops around digital arts and creative technologies. They cover a wide range of disciplines, creative ideas and practical skills – something suitable for every level of experience.

We also offer Basic Use and Safety (BUS) Training on different tools and activities in the Lab.
