Sónar Campus, a new summer school for young people to discover, create and experiment with digital technology applied to creativity


Sónar and Fundació Pere Tarrés introduce Sónar Campus, a summer school consisting of a series of workshops, for teenagers from 14 to 17, that will bring young people closer to technology applied to creativity. Assisted by artists and technologists, participants will learn and experiment with music, visual arts and interaction design in a series of activities. This transdisciplinary educational programme is an excellent introduction to digital artistic creation related to computer programming and electronic engineering.

Teenagers will build their own electronic musical instruments in the workshops with maker and musical technology teacher Marc Sibila, whereas sound artist Linalab will teach them how to create electronic music through computer language. They will get to know Arduino, an electronic prototyping platform for building interactive objects, with Mariona Aloy and Marina Quintero, and they will create visual art assisted by visualist Alba G. Corral.

Sónar Campus will take place from 2 to 6 and 9 to 14 of July. Participants will be able to attend in one or both weeks of the programme.
