The LightTAG project has now ended. LightTAG enabled 62 young people from across the South East to build confidence and achievement through a unique science and media art collaboration. LightTAG encouraged the young people to tell personal stories about their life and demonstrated how art and science work together through light. Science and art have much in common – both are trying to make sense of the world around us.
You can check out the fantastic work here on this blog and on facebook.
Be sure to check out the beautiful catalogue under the blog Exhibition page and see the LightTAGs created by the young people for the final exhibition.
After an undisclosed amount of emails, more than 1750 images and 22 animations, 23 full days of exciting workshops at 6 different universities and a touring exhibition at 6 galleries, we say goodbye for now. We hope you will enjoy the work produced by the 62 LightTAG artists.

Please join us at the official grand opening of LightTAG at BFI Southbank on 11th February. Here you’ll have chance to see the young people’s work and take part in some exciting live activities. Do pass on this invite to anyone you think might be interested. More details to follow.
See you there!
We’ve had a busy few weeks and our Facebook page is getting a lot of traffic too! This might be due to the fantastic animations created by the young people we’ve already met at the first two LightTAG workshops.
Here’s a preview of our popular Facebook page but do visit yourself: http://www.facebook.com/pages/LightTAG/153178608030961
Our second workshop is now complete. Taking place at Watermans in west London, we welcomed a group of talented young people who produced some stunning images such as this one, above. Their animations will be uploaded soon too but do keep your eye on our Facebook page and Twitter too.

As you’ll see from our last post, we were thrilled with the Canterbury workshop and all the work which was produced.
In addition to the light drawings, the young people also worked on some animations. Here’s one to get you started but do visit our Workshops page for more!
