Let’s Do Something Awesome

I’m off to the Australian capital Canberra tomorrow to work with Libraries ACT on their annual training day.


We’ll be looking at creative approaches to community engagement, and sharing some neat little tools from my team, including the WELCOME Toolkit for programme design.

If you’re reading this at a computer and want to join in the fun, here’s an easy way to get creative with digital materials.

Choose a JPEG image file which you like.


Rename it as a .TXT file instead of .JPG.


Copy, paste, delete, or mess around with some of the code in the .TXT file you have created.


Now save it and rename it once more as a .JPG.


With a bit of trial and error, you’ll get some awesome results.

Just to sum up:

If you can’t make it to Canberra, you can still be part of the fun.

Thanks to the great Sean Justice for switching me on to this neat digital image activity.
