Sync is a new two-year programme for the cultural sector in Scotland and we excited to be part of it!

“Sync will be hosting Culture Hack Scotland — a playful and productive experiment to see what developers, designers and cultural professionals can make together in just 24 hours. We will be running a Geeks-in-Residence programme — pairing up creative technologists with forward-looking organisations to make new, valuable, ambitious projects. And we will be publishing an online magazine called SyncTank — showcasing the freshest thinking about how digital is enabling, inspiring and changing our cultural practice and experiences.”

Snook are delighted that our very own Andy Young is part of Sync’s first set of Geeks-In-Residence.

The 2012 placements are:

Denise Ross working with Stills.

Stef Lewandowski working with Eigg Box/Island of Eigg.

Yann Seznec working with Scottish Opera.

Phil Leggetter & Andy Young working with macrobert.

Alistair Macdonald & Andy Young working with Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Now that the matchings have happened, over the summer each of the talent or talent pairs will meet their host organisations and start to explore what direction their residency will take. Sync are looking forward to what should be five exciting and instructive engagements and of course as the residencies kick-off and develop everyone will be sharing their stories through SyncTank.

So for now, congratulations to those six people and also the five hosts and we’re looking forward to supporting Andy on his Sync journey!!
