Venue: Peacocks project space, 11 Castlegate
Time: 10am - 12.30pm and 1.30 - 4pm

Participants will see a screening of some of the films exhibited by David Devant in
the Music Hall and will then have the chance to build their own ‘Victorian’ optical
device, constructed from wood. These wooden devices will be used to show an
animated clip of one of the films first shown in Aberdeen 120 years ago.
