DigitalCity 10th Anniversary

10 years of DigitalCity, Boho, Steve Thompson, OctoramaCongratulations to Cllr Barry Hunt who has once again been elected Loftus Town Mayor. This was quite handy for us because the next day he was due to launch the Octorama “Iron Age To Digital Age” exhibition first seen in 2010 at Loftus Town Hall. He was able to do so wearing his chain of office. The event was to celebrate 10 years of digital activity in Tees Valley and the Octorama was called upon to exemplify community engagement and creativity. There were three community exhibitions featured in the Octorama. The Octorama is a large digital arts installation featuring 8 screens and 8 speakers. It has now run a total of 9 time and now we have made it portable so it can tour. Watch out for it at a venue near you. The next exhibition planned is “Winter Wonderland” in December at Thornaby Academy followed by “Tranquility” at My Place (Custom House) in Middlehaven, Middlesbrough. Thanks to Pete Russell for the Video below from the event.
