Creative Tech Fest 2017

The Digital Media class had a great time participating at the Creative Tech Fest 2017 at Google’s digital innovation venue, The Foundry, Dublin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The day was packed with awards, exhibitions, speakers and workshops celebrating all things in the Creative National TechSpace Network around Digital Media, 3D Design and STEM. The Digital Media class even got to see their stop motion video, which was on mental health, on the big cinema screen!
