Whitworth Textile App developed and designed by Heald Place Primary School

Working alongside our school in residence, Heald Place Primary, and Steve Symons, sound and technical artist for the award winning ‘Owl Project, the Whitworth Art Gallery set about an extensive digital mark-making project with these bright Yr 5 pupils. The brief was simple – to produce a digital app for ‘Smart Glass’ devices that connected, and helped animate, our Textile Gallery display cases. A series of workshops that included researching the materials and fabrics, sharing and showcasing games that the children respond and relate too and of course, much drawing and mark making of the many shapes, symbols and characters on display in our collection – this child led project reaped big dividends for all involved.

This pilot project will be used as a case study for how we help interpret spaces and displays for our younger visitors and audience with a view to a full App developed for the Whitworth’s 2014 re-opening when transformed into the Gallery in the Park.
