ESRC Digital Good Network


Exploring children’s attitudes towards notions of the digital good through hybrid arts practice

Understanding children’s ideas/ knowledge is crucial in shaping our collective vision and actions. Yet, in discussing our shared digital future, many children in deprived areas are invisible through their lack of home wifi access and limited means to use, often shared, technologies. 

This project will host hybrid art workshops for children from a digitally marginalised cohort in Bradford to imagine and shape a possible digital future where technology use is ethical, responsible, and inclusive. Utilising interdisciplinary creative methods drawn from arts education, the project will report on these insights.
