Call out for Duct Tape University project for Do IT artists

Do IT, is a training course run by Community Arts North West for artists to help them use low cost technology to spread the word about their work and learn digital production skills. Following success of last year, the good news is Do IT course – will happen this year too, watch for more details.

We have come up with a great programme to help artists, small business and people active in communities to pick up new skills in getting their message across with social media and media production. And here’s a project to help spread the word – Duct Tape University.

We need your help to make it happen! Please vote for it here.

Why Vote for the Project?

Here are some good reasons to vote for the project:

The project will create a simple to use, attractive website which will showcase the high quality training documents, lesson plans and learning activities. CAN training participants will be able to download these materials for free. It will be a great resource for CAN artists to use when planning their own workshops in the area of digital art and using the web for communication. We will use all of our skills and experience to make the website as easy to use as possible to find the resources you need.
