Reactor micro-projects (part of The Royal Standard Dialogues programme)
4.00pm-6.00pm, Saturday 3 Macrh 2012
Reactor is an art collective that creates projects in which audiences become active participants. Reactor leaves no room for the passive observer, creating work in which, rather than being forced, active engagement becomes the norm. Group dynamics and social interaction come to the fore, as participants immerse themselves in an unknown that invites risk-taking and a heightened sense of reality. A day-long workshop will take place at the Bluecoat, where Reactor will work with participants to develop a series of micro-projects, which the public are invited to inhabit and experience.
