2013 - Current

The Low-Tech High-Tech (LTHT) Community of Practice is a University of the Arts group of academics engaged in various forms of low-tech (analogue) and high-tech (digital) action, traversing sound, space, textiles and interaction. Formed in 2013 the group have undertaken various public educational events that unite these different perspectives, in particular Rope Songs at London College of Communication.

Following this in 2016 the group were granted access to the Bow Gamelan / Burwell Archive, held at Chelsea College of Arts Special Collection with a quest to 'awaken the archive'. Ephemera and visual material charting experimental events of this influential group alongside scripts and programmes undertaken in the Estuary and around London frame an exciting and memorable prospect, with students from London College of Communication, Central St Martins, Chelsea College of Arts and University of Kent the group anticipate a space of collaboration and public learning.
