The weekly workshop day/time/location hasn’t been decided yet. We’ll update the website ASAP once the details are confirmed.


The primary weekly contact hours are the 2hr workshop session (day/time/location TBC). If you’re enrolled in the class, you need to be there every week.

Before you attend the workshop you must have read the corresponding lecture material (see below) and have submitted your weekly AV diary video.

Each week’s content includes:

  • a description of the “creative provocation” for that week’s AV diary entry
  • videos to watch
  • code to read
  • other reading material (papers, blog posts, etc.)

The timeline for each workshop is:

14:45 chance for pre-class questions
15:10 listen to that week’s AV diary submissions
15:30 crit discussion
15:50 small group jam activity
16:20 group performances
16:40 discussion, feedback, questions on notice
