Teletext Block Party - 25 & 26 February 2017 - Centre for Computing History, Cambridge

Postby kieranhj » Fri Jan 27, 2017 2:30 pm

Hey all,

I'm helping to organise another teletext event at the Centre for Computing History. This one is about encouraging people to create artwork in teletext and share it online but there will be some good BBC action as we're planning some tech talks on how to use & abuse MODE 7 for teletext animation plus the whole thing will be situated in the museum's BBC classroom.

The format is very informal, a bit like the ABUG events, with drop in/drop out participation encouraged throughout the weekend. Cost is just the regular price of admission to the museum, which is well worth it in itself if you haven't been already.

All the info & ticket reservations here: https://teletext-party.yapsody.com/event/index/60487/block-party-2017. We have a future retro space theme going on and some awesome artists in attendance. Should be a lot of fun!

Give me a shout if you have any questions. I'll keep posting more info as it arrives.

This is happening next week! Think of it a bit like the ABUG meetups but with more art. ;) Participation is very much encouraged - there will be BBC's provided by the museum but I recommend bringing along your laptop if you want to use more modern Teletext tools.

We're going to be publishing the best artwork & frames from the weekend through a variety of mediums. Come along to say Hi and find out more!
