SDP 16: Emma Cooper on Playgrounds, young people and digital, and diversity in tech
Episode 16 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast is out and features a conversation with Emma Cooper, co-curator of Playgrounds, a week-long free exhibition of interactive art for children and families.
Emma has worked in Sheffield’s digital sector for many years, so we also talk to her about all sorts of other topics too. That includes finding a way to describe what we do, the new Sheffield Women in Tech group/meetup, and how children and young people interact with all things digital.
Sadly, Mel was away for the recording, but me and Chris really enjoyed talking to Emma. If you’re part of or have an interest in Sheffield’s digital community, I think you will find plenty to think about and chew over.
