Glocal: your world in motion

Glocal: your world in motion

The TechLab was transformed into an artist's production studio for the development of this interactive, digital public art project, led by the artist team of M. Simon Levin, Jer Thorp and Sylvia Grace Borda.

Over the course of the year, the team developed educational workshops and toolkits to enable the presentation of thousands of digital artworks created by Surrey youth and contributions from participants from around the world. Glocal was one of the Cultural Capitals of Canada initiatives.
