FreqOUT! will be running it’s own workshop focusing on GPS drawing. Young People will work with Jeremy Wood to make GPS drawings of the local area. Using the latest GPS receivers this is an innovative project that pushes the boundaries of drawing in the digital age.
FreqOUT! is working in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery. A three day workshop entitled 50 Pieces of Personal Info will run daily from 29 - 31st October, 11.00 - 16.00.
Using digital equipment, artists will construct their own multiple data portraits, featuring some of the personal information required for the forthcoming ID cards.

A screening of everyone's work will be held on Friday 31st October at 17.00.
