Olby’s Creative Hub (OCH) is the lead delivery partner of a Digital Skills Programme developed by Turner Contemporary. The project supports those that are currently unemployed. Beginning on May 17 and lasting for eight weeks, four participants will spend two days a week at OCH, using its multi-media facilities to realise their digital project brief.
The participants are tasked with creating content that promotes Thanet, Turner Contemporary and England’s Creative Coast – a cultural travel experience led by Turner Contemporary and Visit Kent, which sees Cement Fields, Creative Folkestone, the De La Warr Pavilion, Hastings Contemporary, Metal, Towner Eastbourne and Turner Contemporary join forces to present ‘Waterfronts’ — seven outdoor art commissions by leading contemporary artists — and the world’s first ever art GeoTour.
With help and guidance from OCH digital experts, participants will learn how to undertake research, develop and present ideas, edit in response to feedback, create content that reaches and communicates effectively with targeted audiences. The team at OCH will support participants to build their digital skills and their confidence in the workplace.
CIC manager Clare Hollister says:
“We are delighted to be partnering with Turner Contemporary on this project and are particularly pleased to be working with members of our community to build their digital skills, and to be sharing our assets and expertise as part of their experience.”
