We’re still processing last week’s unprecedented Fab Lab activity level as it quickly springs to life! We simultaneously hosted Fab Academy, the UofB’s Digital Music and Sound Art Program’s P3 and P7 modules, and a 3-day workshop with circus performers as part of the AHRC-sponsored XR-Circus research project exploring immersive technologies in circus performance.
Fab Academy 2018 is underway! Congratulations to our Fab Academy 2018 students. We have seven new students, one continuing student, and two full observers. You will be able to follow their work on the Fab Academy website and there will be opportunities to see everyone’s work on display in the Fab Lab in September, 2018.
The University of Brighton Fab Lab will be soft-launching in 2018 with a hand-picked group of students, staff, and members of the public participating on full scholarship in the Fab Academy from the end of January until June. This will be the first time the Fab Academy is offered at the University of Brighton and this first class of participants will be specially selected to seed a new group of Fab Lab gurus who can assist in shaping and running the lab in the future. To find out more about Fab Academy, check out the comprehensive information provided on their website. Tuition for Fab Academy is usually $7000, so this is a great opportunity for valuable professional development. To be considered for this first class, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by the 15th of December, 2017. Selections will be finalized by 20 December, 2017.
We are also seeking an experienced Fab Lab instructor with an interest in obtaining a BA or MA in Media Arts. The instructor would work 2-3 days a week in the Fab Lab and study part time towards any degree offered by the School of Media. A small salary would be provided as well as tuition waiver for study.
