About: CCW Digital MakerSpace

The CCW (Camberwell, Chelsea & Wimbledon colleges of Arts) Digital MakerSpace at the University of the Arts London (UAL) is a growing informal, cross disciplinary community exploring and supporting emergent digital making practice through safe-fail experimentation with new & old materials and technologies.

See our latest group: Pop Up Digital MakerSpace

The CCW MakerSpace community aims to foster a collaborative approach across disciplines, HEIs, colleges, schools, industry and the sector to explore digital making in arts learning and creative practice. The community at present includes staff, students & external collaborators who aim to openly share experience, knowledge and interest in experimentation with physical/interactive tech and traditional making practice.

We'll be posting lots of updates on the project group page http://process.arts.ac.uk/category/project-groups/ccw-digital-makerspace so you can keep connected that way, you can also contribute to the group online if you'd like to create an account.

Media labs are liminal but increasingly powerful spaces in many contemporary settings. They appear in universities and colleges, wedged uneasily between traditional departments and faculties. They’re also in basements, warehouses, strip malls and squats. They are stable to varying degrees; many have long-term addresses and an itinerant roster of occupants. Some pop up in one location for a few days, then relocate to another. Sometimes they’re even in mobile trucks in the streets, bringing tools and expertise to children in schools and the general public. As clusters of tools and talent streamlined to produce economic value, labs sometime align with the most ruthless of venture capitalists; in other cases, they are free and open for all to use, disdainful of all commercial motivations.
