people who are exploring the place and impact of technology in our lives.

Delivered through three organisations - Manchester Digital Laboratory,
Broadway in Nottingham, and Makerversity in London - participants in the
pilot programme will be provided with the space, the tools, networks and
the advice necessary to develop new practices, ideas, products and services.

technology studio, adopting best practice from human-centred design to
