Journeying to Falmouth

Some of you might be preparing to travel to Cornwall…

The Jolie Brise, the tall ship a group of you will be working on, is also making her way to Falmouth. You can track her position.

​More information on the ship can be found here

If you are packing your bag then here is a list of things to bring:

– waterproof jacket
– sturdy (walking) shoes and/or trainers
– swimwear
– Warm clothes
– suncream
– bottle of water
– A backpack to comfortably carry things in


– Devices that they would like to experiment with and other stuff hidden in weird drawers (e.g. dusty jack cables, sticky earphones)

– old mobile phones that can get wet

– Your laptop with (sound) editing programs.

And don’t forget to bring a story artefact! A some-thing that tells the story of you and your practice/research/interests in this workshop.
