Over four weeks, up to 40 students aged between 12 and 16 from Portslade Aldridge Academy (PACA) worked with writing charity Little Green Pig and film maker Lucas Orme to create a 3-minute film in response to Pilar Yoldas’ ‘Kitty AI’.
Writing their version of what the world will be like in 2039, and their place in it, they have created an alternative ruler taking inspiration from Kitty AI. On 13th October at Brighton Digital Festival's Messy Edge conference, 10 students will present their finished film to a new audience. Fitting in with the theme of the Messy Edge to hear from ‘not the usual conference suspects’, who better to ‘challenge the dominant perspectives’ than local young people who don’t usually have access or a voice in these types of events, but who are at the forefront of exploring digital culture.
conference attendees and PACA students and faculty. The wider audience for this project will be our partners in the arts, education and youth services in Brighton & Hove and Sussex.
