The Birmingham Open Media (BOM) Summer Camp is back this August with five packed days of art and electronics – this year transporting kids aged 9 – 12 into a world of inventions, inspired by Birmingham’s Industrial Revolution!
BOM Fellow and Creative Technologist Ben Neal will lead young inventors through an exciting journey of creativity and discovery, designing, building and coding new projects with programmable technologies.
Born from Hacker culture, BOM is proactively addressing barriers to cultural participation, by connecting world-class practitioners with activist research and communities – and it’s Summer Camp 2017 sounds amazing.
It takes place 21 – 25 August 10am to 4pm with all children booked onto the full five days, at a total cost of £125 per child.

BOM (Birmingham Open Media) is forging a new model of radical practice at the intersection of art, technology and science with measurable social impact.
By making sustained investment in a community of Fellows and developing strategic projects and partnerships, we test pioneering ideas that investigate the transformative value of the arts across education, health and society.

We are born from hacker culture. But unlike other hackspaces that are filled with tools and operate on a membership model, our building foregrounds public engagement with a free gallery and events space, and supports a curated community of practitioners to deliver our aims.
