Ben Shepherd

Digital Arts Coordinator

Ben is the Digital Arts Coordinator at 20Twenty Productions. Ben’s primary role is to assist with the delivery and session planning of the digital arts projects that 20Twenty delivers. This includes two significant projects: Bits and Bites and Get Creative on the Ward.

Bits and Bytes is an inspiring project. Ben really enjoys this project as one of the main educational tools we use to help develop school pupils is LEGO Mindstorms, a robotics system that children (and University students) use to design, build and code fully functioning robots. Indeed we all love to see what amazing creations both children and young people produce.

Get Creative on the Ward is a very diverse project! One day we are making music using Logic Pro X whilst the next we could be animating a fuzzy green monster! That’s what Ben enjoys about this project, there are so many different art-forms to work with. Ben truly enjoys seeing the joy on a young persons face when they have created something they feel proud of.
