A family-friendly weekend of digital art takes place on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 March with Ticket to Ride at Dewsbury Train Station, Bingo Balls at Batley Train Station and IOU’s Fulcrum at The New Picture House, Dewsbury. 

If you’re travelling through Dewsbury Train Station on Friday and Saturday evening, you’ll be treated to Ticket to Ride – a short film from the train drivers’ point of view along with snippets from people journeying on the Transpennine line, telling us where they’re coming from and where they are going to. Take a seat on the Creative Scene sofa placed on the platform and watch as the waiting room is transformed into a light-box projecting the film, created by Keighley-based artists Shanaz Gulzar and Steve Manthorp.

Then grab one of Creative Scene’s free rail tickets and take the one-minute train journey to Batley Train Station for a game of bingo like no other. Bingo Balls by Let’s Go Global will project film (and a giant game of bingo) onto a building opposite the station. Eyes down look in! There are prizes to be won, tea to be drunk and a peep into one of the world’s best-loved games as we see and hear from players from Dewsbury Mecca Bingo Hall.

On Friday evening and during the day on Saturday, international arts organisation IOU is bringing its most recent work Fulcrum to volunteer-led community cinema The New Picture House, Dewsbury.

Fulcrum is a non-stop-motion animation film made before your eyes. Using robotics, intricately carved miniatures and mysteriously complex technology, we join a woman on a train journey through northern moors and towns as she imagines a world transformed.

In the small cinema room you can see the little scenes the robotic machines are videoing projected live onto the big screen. Here an animated story unfolds – accompanied by the floating sounds of a strummed guitar.

Opening Times

Creative Scene will be hosting a #digitaldialogues trail where audiences can see all three events. Meet at The New Picture House, Dewsbury at 6pm for a guided tour of all three pieces.
