*gruntcraft* is a Mine-Craft-based virtual studio for Young Artists is currently recruiting participants.

Using the popular online game MineCraft as a creative

medium to engage youth in contemporary art, meeting them in the virtual

spaces they occupy. Grunt gallery will establish a MineCraft server to

function as a virtual studio for youth participants. Through a combination

of working online and in person, the progress of the participants’ creative

exploration will be fostered through studio visits and presentations from

professional artists, and the mentorship of the Project Director.

Minecraft is a “sandbox” game, meaning it provides the user with a set of

creative tools, rather than a narrative or goal based game. Users create a

virtual 3D world pixel by pixel. This game is easy to learn but it also has

an expanding capacity for building complex objects. It is incredibly

popular across the world, users can work independently or in a

collaborative environment.

Creative work, driven by youth, is flourishing in shared virtual spaces.

This activity falls within the artistic scope of grunt gallery’s recently

appointed media lab, gruntKitchen. With the guidance and support of

professional artists, youth participants will develop a series of

individual and group projects in a virtual studio with the objectives of

creative exploration, artistic inquiry, and engagement.

Further engagement in this project will be pursued online via the game’s

environment, the production of a series of YouTube videos, and open-house

presentations at the gallery. Support will also be provided for the participants and artists to experiment with 3D printing.
