Introductions

My name is Becky, we may have met. I was introduced to Re-Dock through a two week internship during the Summer of 2011, organised through the University of Liverpool, where I am currently studying English.  My passions can be surmised as; comics, children’s literature and folk tales, cross stitching cartoon characters, writing bad poetry and baking cakes without wheat in them. I also nurture an obsession with zombies, taxidermy and an increasing interest in how/what/why people communicate with each other.

SYNTAX: Coding for Writers

As swan journey ends, another begins

On March 18th, Grace completed an extraordinary feat, pedalling the 127 miles of the Leeds – Liverpool canal. It was a massive achievement for Grace, and of course for the BBC Radio Leeds team who seconded her on this crazy mission, and between them they raised over £50k for Sport Relief.

The project was remarkable in other ways too though… Read more…

Music For Sleeping

We recently staged a very special audiovisual event at St Helens Central Library as part of the ongoing Library of Dreams project. The show, entitled Music For Sleeping, featured animations, videos, sounds and spoken word recordings created by the public through a series of digital arts workshops at the library. The final presentation was a half hour long, surround sound journey with the audience laid on their backs on comfy mats, whilst watching the projections on the ceiling overhead.
