An evening for the digitally curious

14th December at 7pm

Get Your Ticket

Kernow DAT is a melting pot for Cornish creativity with a twist of tech, perfect for the digitally curious.

With the world more interlinked than ever before, it’s important to connect in an informal setting to celebrate our passion for all things in the creative sphere. Events like this encourage the exchange of ideas between related industries and like-minded individuals. Cornwall has an amazing spread of digital disciplines, let’s celebrate them together.

Each evening focuses around a project from the broad range of creative disciplines based in Cornwall. But we do things differently. It won’t be a parade of passive talks to sit through. It is a creative event after all. Keep reading for details of the next outing.

The Project

Book Sniffers Club logo

Book Sniffers Club

The Book Sniffers Club is a new creative wellbeing project which aims to get our noses back into our books and make breathing fun again.

We'll be exploring the artistic thought process behind the project, highlighting the need to have some fun with our noses after a year of mask wearing as well as diving into the technology that powers the online portal for the project.

Whether you're a book worm or not, this is a project that is sure to put a smile on your face.

The People

Justin Wiggan is an artist working at the frontiers of arts and public intervention. His practice includes a range of media from sound, phonics, film, drawing, installation, interventions and performance, and has also attracted collaboration across the medical research and creative industries sectors.

His works have been exhibited nationally and internationally: B.O. M Birmingham, Protein Gallery London, Baltic Gallery, Citric Gallery Italy, Gigantic Art Space New York. His aim is to educate, share and engage people with sound as a creative field and reconnect with their lives using sound art.

James is a graphic designer with a portfolio as diverse as creative arts projects (like this one) to designing beer bottles. He loves book design, clean functional websites, a good cup of coffee and a challenging brief!

The Format

This event has a dual format. Getting a ticket will give you access to both.

The Supporter

Morrab Library Penzance

Morrab Library was established in 1818 and is the only surviving independent library in Cornwall.

Located in a beautiful Victorian house in the heart of the Morrab Gardens, the library houses over 70,000 volumes and an extensive archive of photographs, manuscripts, and historic newspapers collected throughout its history. The Library’s particular strength is on Cornish history, literature and people.

We provide spaces to create, work, research, or just to sit, read and enjoy the beautiful views. We offer a regular schedule of talks and events, and opportunities to attend classes and workshops on a diverse range of topics. It's very much a social space too, and all are welcome.
