Details

NetPark is a new visitor attraction for Southend and presents a collection of specially commissioned, site-specific, digital artworks and stories for Chalkwell Park in Southend on Sea.
The works are engaging and playful. Each takes you on a different journey around the park, providing a variety of experiences of the park environment that are in turn surprising, funny, informative and thought-provoking. Designed for a variety of audiences, the range of works ensures that there is something to enchant all ages and allows for a shared experience or individual contemplation.
All the works are experienced through a smart device, either iPad, iPhone or Android. All are best experienced with a set of headphones.
The inaugural collection has five artworks created by artists following an open call selection process, and five site-specific stories created by Southend school pupils working with writers and illustrators.

The gallery will be showing original sketches, creative processes and the final works by the contributing artists.
