Baby BeetaDigital, R&D
BEETA (Business, Environment, Engineering, Technology and Arts) is a collaboration between East Street Arts and Invisible Flock – a new digital space for artists in Leeds.
BEETA will interrogate the use of new and traditional techniques and technologies. It will create a space that will provide equipment, mentoring, guest lectures, workshops and one-to-one’s, all with a culture led focus. It will host a programme to encourage action and thinking around how these techniques can help new enterprise impact directly on the city and the global environment.
Whilst we are going through the process of purchasing and renovating a home for BEETA we are kickstarting with BABY BEETA, a 2 month intensive residency test space for developing digital art practices; examining tools, techniques and how it is possible to support artists to be leaders in innovation.
Throughout BABY BEETA we will run a programme of events, workshops and meals, with an open invitation to join local, national, and international collaborators for conversations on the role of artists in the future economy and the development of the city.
