Rewarding the curiosity of the playful. Revealing the hidden moments of joy between digital things and the real world

Making stuff with things and things with stuff

Ludic Rooms is a postdigital arts organisation led by a collaborative approach and a passion for creative technology. Our work is enquiry-led and site responsive. We like to help make things which are interactive and are informed by the ways in which all people can be creators, not just consumers.

Our ongoing programmes

Random String

A wide-reaching development programme exploring the use of networked, interactive and creative technologies by artists. Includes: the RS Fellowships, an artist development and mentoring scheme; the RS Symposium, a sector-focussed day of sharing best practice hosted by Warwick Arts Centre; and the RS microFestival, a public celebration of arts and technology in Coventry City Centre.

Open Citizens

When we play together, we belong together. A series of projects exploring how a playful approach to creative technologies in public space might drive new conversations around democracy and citizenship in the 21st century. Current incarnation as Coventry City of Culture Bid Digital Artists in Residence with additional support from Arts Council England.
