February's #TechTalkCPT focuses on Tech and Innovation in Art and Design. At the start of the month we had the lovely James Webb and Ralph Borland telling us bout their experience in the industry, now as a special surprise we are delighted to announce our first international guest for the year Klasien van de Zandschulp. 

Klasien will shortly present storytelling projects through mobile technology, like the social network for Dutch paintings from the 17th Century, location based audio platform HearUsHere (http://www.hearushereapp.com/) and the social music game DuoDisco.

We end with a short workshop where you’ll be able to create your own audio story on objects using iBeacons.
Bring your headphones because part of the evening we will get ready to find dance partners through DuoDisco: a mobile pop up disco on your smartphone.
