On Monday, partners from the AYCH project attended Venturefest south west, at Exeter Sandy park. Venturefest is an event for innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset and saw almost 600 people from various sectors attend.
Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs went to try and promote the project, as well as to make links with other businesses. Three partners from the project were there – Space* (ourselves), Plymouth College of Art and Vida Lactea. ‘The Empathy Project’ also attended the event with their prototype and spoke to many different stands about what it was they were trying to achieve.
People took a real interest in our project and it was really interesting seeing some of the other prototypes, and meeting so many interesting people. We hope to attend next year with our finished product.
