We recently brought Omni-Science to the Fruit Market and then a community event down Hessle Road organised by Groundwork, which saw our Omni Unit carry out commands that ranged from making barista-style coffee, to having fun in a playground. We thought that Omni would be able to go offline and recharge his battery once the shows had finished, but instead he’s been in high demand!
Earlier this month, Omni wowed audiences at the first ever Tech Expo Humber in the Bonus Arena, and now he’s been asked to appear at This Is Who I Am, Creative Voice’s youth arts festival. The full programme of activities runs from Monday 28th October to Saturday 2nd November, with Omni joining the Pop Up Exhibition and Workshops in Princes Quay.
Make sure to visit the shopping centre that week to get involved in all kinds of fun, including printing, photography, fashion, DJ mixing, music, illustration and game design. There’s no need to book and it’s completely free to enjoy, so just turn up!
Omni will be in a shop unit on the first floor on Saturday 2nd November from 12pm till 3:30pm. He’ll be part of the Goodwin Development Trust’s gaming event with Underhull, which celebrates retro video games and invites you to take part in amazing competitions. We’d like to thank Andrew Harper from Goodwin for giving us this opportunity to introduce Omni to even more people, and if you haven’t yet had the chance to give our robot commands, you definitely need to come down and see what he’s all about.
If you have children and teenagers in your family (recommended age range 11-19), check out the festival programme (above) and explore the many workshops, performances, conversations and exhibitions that focus on issues that are important to young people. As for Omni, he’ll see you in Princes Quay on the Saturday afternoon!
