The Touch Trust Team, led by Dilys Price, OBE and Charlotte Aubrey, will host the first OpenFrameworks-ReacTickles design lab to be held in Wales. The Touch Trust is a centre that offers creative, touch-based, art, movement and dance programmes for individuals affected by Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and Profound Learning Difficulties (PLD).
Utilizing an inspire-play-create-appropriate methodology, the aim of the lab is to generate ideas for experiential interfaces that compliment the therapeutic activities offered at the Touch Trust.
