Challenge Accepted 4 Day Intensive

Thursday, October 21

Challenge Accepted is a chance to re-imagine a public space in Plymouth using movement, projection, lighting and sound. The result will be a multi media installation and live performance and we want to make it with you.

MakeAmplify are an award-winning collective of artists and technologists working are looking for local creatives and enthusiastic first timers to create something new, and unexpected, together.

We will be working indoors and outdoors, weird and long hours, and try things we’ve never done, with people we’ve never met and all in about 72 hours. We expect it to be as bonkers and satisfying as it is exhausting! Enthusiasm, open mindedness and teamwork counts more than skills and experience, and we are really interested to work with as wide a range of people as possible

***What will we create?***
A one of a kind spectacle at Prime Skatepark, featuring live performers, projection wizardry and a brilliant soundtrack – all made by an amazing cast of talented street sport athletes, dancers, filmmakers and digital creatives.

***Requirements of participation***
Suitable for ages 16+
An interest in street sport athletes, dancers, filmmakers and/or digital creatives (after you have booked you will be emailed to ask you to detail what ideas you will bring to the project).This intensive will be hard work, with long days but incredibly rewarding and fun.
