They will then be given the opportunity to create a photo capturing a moment at Edinburgh, and be enabled to associate it with their design. Embedding and preserving the moment in the design on the t-shirt.

This is part of a series of workshops and public engagement events that have been planned to understand social and cultural associations between objects and media, and contexts & relationships in which they sit. To inform wider work around gifting practices. Insights will inform future scenarios and the development of prototypes in the lead up to a public stall showcasing new forms of hybrid gifts.
