Alumnus Hefin Jones holding a Home Grown Space Travel Workshop at The Floating Cinema

'The Welsh Space Campaign'
‘The Welsh Space Campaign’

On Sunday 6 September, you are invited to an evening of Space Speculation Design  at the Floating Cinema (moored at The Proud Archivist in Haggerston):

“Join Hefin Jones, founder of The Welsh Space Campaign, on board The Floating Cinema for a light-hearted, imaginative, design workshop.

Participants will work to embrace the absurd and generate ideas which are then turned into imaginary plans for space colonisation and the creation of their own guide to space travel!

Using the extreme context of deep space and space travel, aligned to real time local businesses and the future/extreme space contexts they might operate in – this fantastical workshop brings together unexpected components which wouldn’t normally be associated with each other, to create something really unique and surprising.

The images, ideas and representations of space are borrowed from cinema and the processes you engage in will form part of a design method that involves participation, interaction, and more than just mere speculation…

Who should come: This workshop is designed to engage all age ranges and experience levels from 16+ so if you have an interest in interdisciplinary design, a love for all that is cosmic, or are simply just fascinated in the concepts around the Welsh Space Campaign join us!”

The workshop starts at 3 pm; tickets will be £6.50 with £5 concessions.

Hefin Jones is a 2013 graduate of our BA Design course and a visiting tutor at Goldsmiths Design, where he also runs the Art and Design Saturday Club. The Welsh Space Campaign started as Hefin’s graduation project from Goldsmiths.
