Winter Escape Plan – round 2

WEP Event

 

After an intense opening day during Vesterbro RAW we decided to present a second round of Winter Escape Plan – to crank up the heat a bit and to invite more people into the escape room filled with green trees, sand, flowers, birds, bumble bees, wasps, flies and maybe even a summer thunder storm could be found.

Winter Escape Plan

Do you fancy winter in the south of Scandinavia? Wet, dark, windy, brownish slug … Well we almost hate it so to make the darkness a bit brighter and lighter we are creating Winter Escape Plan, which will be our first event in Copenhagen on the 2nd of December, 1 pm – 8 pm.

You are welcome to stop by and brighten our day even more and do take time to visit Vesterbro Raw, an alternative Christmas market at Råhuset and Forsamlingshuset at Onkel Dannys Plads.

 

New horizon

We Come in Peace

It is time for change and movement, after a lot of thought and creative, chaotic pondering. Next week, the 27th of October, Cat Eyed People’s Playground will rise to the sky and go on a journey south, and land in Copenhagen. During the following twelve months we will be located at Onkel Dannys Plads and will collaborate with Råhuset. It is a dream come true.

We leave Gothenburg and Masthuggskajen with sadness, it has been a brilliant place and we have met a lot of wonderful people, had inspiring talks and fun in rain, sunshine and snow. But now it is time for new adventures. To move on has always been part of the plan with CEPP. We a nervous, excited and soooo ready to kick it in Copenhagen – meet new people, get inspired and challenged and to have fun in-between.

Copenhagen – We come in peace!

Beats & Ord visits Oslo

tos

On the 10th of October Beats & Ord will take part in Music Technology Days 2017 (Musikkteknologidagene 2017) at the Norweigan Academy of Music (Norges musikkhøgskole) in Oslo, Norway. Beats & Ord will be presented in a new and more refined version that is all digital, using video instead of physical signs.  It will be great fun and interesting to meet the public, and see the installation in action again.

 

Ars Electronica, the past summer and the future

 

The summer passed way to fast and it has been a few months of catching up after our workshop in Bergen. Currently we are working on a larger physical 3-D installation that hopefully will meet the public before the end of the year.

During September we got the opportunity to visit Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria a got loads of new inspiration. Traveling back to Gothenburg we unfortunately was informed that Cat Eyed People’s Playground must move already before the end of October and at present we are trying to get all settled and find a new site for our workshop, events and exhibitions. So at present everything except looking for a new location has come to a stand, but we hope to be back in ‘business’ by the beginning of November.

 

 

Digital Technology in Arts Education, DTAE, Bergen Norway

 

A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to both be part of and attend the conference Digital Technology in Arts Education DTAE, at Western Norway University of Applied Science, in Bergen Norway. Thanks to a Mobility Funding from the Nordic Culture Point we were able to go there and thanks to an invite from the conference we held a Slot Car Music workshop with the conference participants. A thoroughly inspiring conference, new acquaintances and beautiful surroundings.
