FutureNetwork & formXtended are the two phases of a project initiated by dancedigital, a UK-based organisation which aims to serve as a hub for catalysing creative development and exchange in digital dance practices.
I have been involved in the project between March 2014 and 2015 with the mission to design interactive systems for creative workshops, to coordinate the prototyping and software development, as well as to participate in the collection of relevant findings for research and grant applications.

"The dancedigital FutureNetwork brings professional dance and technology artists to your school to work with the teachers and young people to explore new ways of learning. The framework offers schools a combination of artist led workshops with young people, mentoring and training sessions for teachers, the opportunity to see professional dance and technology work on stage and engage in the creation of a technology driven dance work that will be showcased in professional environment.
dancedigital is passionate about future ways of learning and problem solving offered by making connections across the artistic, technological and scientific disciplines. We invite schools to join us in the exploration of integrating dance and technology in broad range of subject areas with a focus on STEM subjects."
