Only a couple of days to go till The Heritage Jam 2017! We are so thrilled to be getting to meet everyone, and to experience everybody's creations this weekend.

Hopefully you have recieved an email from the team and are good to go - here are the key bits of information that you will need to know on the day!

 

Location:

 

The Jam will be happening in the centre of leeds, at the Leeds City Museum: a 10 minute walk from the railway station. The physical address is:

 

Leeds City Museum,

Millennium Square,

Leeds

LS2 8BH

 

What to bring with you:

 

The THJ2017 team will provide pens, paper, powerboards and a limited array of craft supplies. Please note that you will need to bring your own specialist supplies, and if you are planning on working digitally we suggest downloading any programs you anticipate using - there is free wifi on site but it may struggle under the weight of a multitude of large downloads!

 

The THJ2017 team will provide tea, coffee, water and snacks on both days, however you will need to provide your own meals (there is a cafe on site or you can take a short walk into Leeds centre). There are a wealth of cafes, restaurants and supermarkets a short walk from the venue.

Other info for the day:

 

On the day a member of the THJ2017 staff will be on hand to welcome you and provide a welcome pack (stuffed full of useful information) to help get you set up in your working space. Those who have requested to be sorted into a group by the THJ2017 team will be introduced before the curator of Archaeology, Kat Baxter, takes us on a tour of the museum for inspiration. What you do after this is up to you! Until 3pm on the saturday you are free to explore the museum, create widely, experiment and test your visualisations. You can expect this part of the jam to be inspiring, intense, fun and most of all: hugely rewarding.

 

On Saturday afternoon you will be invited to give a short presentation to our judges and your co-jammers, after which our judges will deliberate, feedback will be given, winners announced and an evening of chatting over a drink or two is planned. If you are intending on attending only on the Friday we can arrange to have one of our THJ2017 team give your presentation for you - just have a chat to us when you arrive!


 

We can’t wait to get creating with you! See you on Friday!
