The Digital Exploration Centre (DEC) is a network of innovators using digital technology, formed to be a catalyst for cross-discipinary work, the sharing of ideas and a public programme of exhibitions, events and debate.
The DEC is working towards its ambition to create a leading centre for the creative exploration and application of digital technology with respect to research, art, commerce, education and entertainment in Southend-on-Sea. This new centre is a key part of Southend-on-Sea’s regeneration plan, supported by East of England Development Agency (EEDA), Renaissance Southend Ltd (RSL) and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council (SBC).
Metal and the DEC have formed an innovative, developmental partnership to help achive this aim. The DEC is currently housed within Metal facilities at Chalkwell Hall to present an exciting programme of events for 2010 and 2011.
Small World Fair is an exhibition of ideas, artworks, curiosities and questions around how the world is shaped by technology curated by Simon Poulter.
