bloc is a Wales-based organisation and international hub of creators, producers, makers and thinkers supporting creative uses of technology. Established in 1998, bloc has been a leading advocate of creative technology in Wales, producing a series of ground breaking festivals (May We Live in Interesting Times 2005 and 2008), commissions (Virtual bloc 2011), events (Machynlleth Mini Maker Faire 2013), and research projects (Digital Craft with Glyndwr University 2012).
We challenge and investigate innovative forms of artistic, business and social innovation enabled by technology. We work with a wide variety of partner organisations.
Our monthly ebulletin is shared with over 800 people, made up of creative technologists, artists, makers, academics, curators, inventors and computer scientists from across Wales and beyond.
