No pre-booking is required, but families will need to attend from start of the session to ensure a place.

DigisQUAD - digital arts activities for young people aged 12-16 years - will be running a workshop to design and animate a 3D golf course inspired by the exhibition, Doug Fishbone’s Leisureland Golf. DigisQUAD: 3D Animated Golf takes place in QUAD on August 8-10, from1:30pm to 4pm.

The cost is £45 for all three sessions. KidsQUAD and DigisQUAD places are limited, any children with additional support needs should come with their own care support.

There are also two Digital Workshops for young people themed around Minecraft and digital design.

Returning for a second year, QUAD’s ‘Hack and Build’ event delves into the world of table top games. Table Top Hack and Build is a three day workshop suitable for ages ten to 18 years.

During the sessions, young people will work in teams with local artists and professionals to develop skills in digital design, including Photoshop, 3D, augmented reality and electronics to create mixed reality board and card games.

QUAD is also screening a season of classic animated family friendly films over the summer from one of the greatest international animation studios.
