Tools for Creativity Workshop with Matthew Gray

Led by Matthew Gray, Assistant Professor of Acting and Directing in the College of Arts, Media and Design, this hands-on workshop walk participants through the stages of making one’s own Arduino-controlled projector dampener. Participants will learn about hardware and software requirements, will have the opportunity to use and experiment with completed dampeners, and will work with five Teaching Assistants to get project-specific questions answered.

Participants are asked to purchase an Arduino micro controller board (commonly found at electronics stores like RadioShack or You-Do-It Electronics) prior to the workshop. In addition to an Arduino, it is recommended that participants bring a laptop and a USB cable. But rest easy: no soldering irons required!

Matthew Gray is a director, actor, educator, and sound designer. In 1997 he received his directing degree from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). He then went on to teach and direct at LAMDA for eight years, directing over 30 plays. Matthew is Assistant Professor of Acting and Directing in the College of Arts, Media & Design.

Supported by: Northeastern Center for the Arts, Boston Center for the Arts, and the Department of Theatre
