Aspex Digital Arts Apprentice Harriet Carr speaks about her experience assisting with the delivery of the Gallery's second digital arts workshop, up-skilling women aged 18 - 35 years in the Portsmouth area.
This workshop forms part of PONToon (Partnership Opportunities using New Technologies fostering sOcial and ecOnomic inclusioN), an Interreg 5A France (Channel) England research project, running June 2017 – November 2020.
PONToon is a project that will use a range of new and developing technologies such as games development, 3D/virtual reality, social media and web/mobile apps to engage, support and up-skill women in order to aid their employment opportunities.
As the only arts organisation involved in PONToon, Aspex's approach is very different to the other partners. Read below to discover more, and also visit the PONToon website: pontoonproject.eu
