Digital amnesty and two more walkshop dates for your diary

Digital Amnesty – why not get rid of long forgotten digital devices to support a new playful App for Southend?

Do you own some long forgotten digital devices (phones, wii, xboxes, tablets) that are still in working order but no longer loved and you’d like to contribute to a good cause? Then why not bring these along on 28th April (2-6PM) , let us turn them into cash so your contribution goes towards supporting us in developing Play Southend Now or Never -Southend’s own playful App – which will work on your new mobile devices. We’ll invite you to an exclusive pre-launch introduction to the App and add you name to our supporters on the App itself (as well as our website).

Two more dates for diaries:

Futurepark Walkshop 28th April 6-8pm On Thursday 28th April between 6-8pm we will run a special ‘walkshop’ for Future Park at METAL Southend which is also part of the official opening of METAL art school. We’ll be exploring Chalkwell Park and surroundings, discovering playful ways to interact and discover the area through your eyes and memories, as they work on Play Southend Now Or Never! – the App, which will be launched at Village Green Festival on the 9th July 2016. The walkshop is free and promises to be fun and inspiring. We will start from Chalkwell Hall and return there for light refreshments. To find out more go to METAL’s website.

And last but not least – on 7th May 12-5pm  we’ll be doing some early App testing – drop in any time to help us work out what’s in and what isn’t…further details will follow…_I6A1638edit
