IDEAS : PEOPLE : PLACES, An arts strategy to embed the arts in a genuine and meaningful way, in a small number of imaginative and innovative regeneration projects, funded by the Arts Council of Wales.

Tom was commissioned by ArtsReach to undertake a series of creative sessions under the above project.

Tom worked with a Holyhead secondary school science departmentusing Minecraft as a platform to design a series of imaginary environments and architectural structures. These structures were devised without practical constraints or limitations, embracing the ideological notion of utopia.

A local 3-d printer company was invited to the school, and a display of the printer’s technology was explored culminating in the creation of the student’s Minecraft structures.
