Hwa Young Jung is an award winning multidisciplinary designer working in art, culture and science, with a passion for opening up technology to everyone. On Saturday 12th August, she will join us at Cooke’s Studios to talk about her work as well as lead a fun and dynamic coding workshop.
Based in Manchester (UK) Hwa Young has been involved in grassroots led community spaces, makers and artists in the North and internationally for over ten years – running hackathons, exhibitions, workshops and few laser cut trophies along the way. She is ¼ of Re-Dock, an artist collective working with people and technology based in Liverpool & Manchester and ⅓ of Domestic Science, a collective of artists using interactive non-fiction to explore narratives around science and data that surrounds us everyday.
Open to anyone aged 15+ who is keen to learn skills in coding and basic game design, the workshop will give you an opportunity to make your own ‘interactive fiction’. Learn how to create Text Adventure Games using the programme Twine, where you choose the different paths for the game player to take. Interactive Fiction creates a dialogue with the player to explore multiple stories. You’ll learn how to create your own game…. You can write! Add your own photography! Maybe even add some sound to your creation… It will be a fun and dynamic day-long workshop, suitable for coding beginners and those who are new to using Twine and/or game design.
