Anna Fuste, researcher at MIT Medialab, visited Leicester's first Art-AI Festival to run a series of workshops with local school children. The workshops were hosted at Highcross and facilitated by Anna and Luba Elliott. The children were from Sandfield Close Primary School, which does lots of great work on STEM subjects. The video shows the kids having a lot of fun with the Paper Cubes and Hypercubes projects, co-developed by Anna and her colleagues at Google and MIT.
The Art-AI Festival ran between 30 April and 13 May 2018, and was directed by Prof Tracy Harwood of the Institute of Creative Technologies (De Montfort University, Leicester, UK), working with partners Phoenix, Highcross and Luba Elliott. The Festival was sponsored by #DMULocal. The festival website can be found at art-ai.dmu.ac.uk
