• New projects in King's Lynn & Wisbech

    May 2017: We’re currently working to two projects in King's Lynn and Wisbech. The R&D Challenge in King's Lynn started in May with 4 teams working over the summer on projects around data, light and projection. In Wisbech, The Brink a story-led augmented reality project will start in June with a cohort of local creatives and participants to develop a trail of futuristic stories around along the North Brink area.

    Each project is supported by Arts Council England, Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEP and locally Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk and Market Place in Wisbech. The outcomes from the projects will launch to partners and the public in October 2017.
